Use Eclipse + Cloud Connector to access HANA database instance in SAP Cloud Platform

There are two approaches to manipulate HANA database instance in SAP Cloud Platform:
1. Use SAP HANA Web-Based Development Workbench provided in SCP cockpit
2. Directly operate on Cloud database in Eclipse with help of Cloud Connector
Switch to Data Source Explorer view in Eclipse, and create a new Connection Profile:
Profile type: Generic JDBC
Maintain Properties as below:
  • Connection URL
You should maintain service channel url created in Cloud Connector.
It means you need to first create a service channel in Cloud Connector and point it to the HANA database instance in SCP. Details please refer to my blog Use JDBC to connect to HANA database instance in SAP Cloud Platform
  • Database Name
Fill the HANA database instance ID in SCP.
  • Driver Class
com.sap.db.jdbc.Driver
  • JAR List
you can download from this url.
Once done, you could directly use Eclipse to browse HANA database instance in SCP.
