  • first check your systemtyp 32bit or 64 bit. Right-click on computer – prereferences


  • unzip your downloaded eclipse version and start eclipse.

if eclipse doesnt start please update to version 1.8+ – here


  • select your workspace


  • Download the SAP HANA Tools



  • Location

  • choose your components

  • Installation overview


  • download and install the software


  • restart your eclipse


New possibilities after installing SAP HANA tools.

      Hello to all. I would like to install eclipse at home to practice, but the tutorial says that you need a HTTP Proxy. I do not have an HTTP Proxy. How can I do? Thank you
