SapMachine and SAP HANA Studio

last changed: 16th of November 2021

SapMachine is an OpenJDK released maintained and supported by SAP.
You can replace the in-build JAVA Support from the SAP HANA Studio with SapMachine.

You can use this to replace any existing JAVA (owned by Oracle) deliveries on you local Frontend or Terminal Server. Download the 64-Bit binaries either as

  • zip archive (allows you own location)
  • installation packages

Make sure that you adapt the Environment of your Frontend for SapMachine as well, like

  • SAP_JRE8_64
  • Path

Edit the File C:\Program Files\SAP\hdbstudio\hdbstudio.ini

And replace the -vm parameter with the SapMachine
Old:      plugins/
New:    c:/usr/sap/sapmachine-jdk-11.0/bin

the latest SAP HANA Studio Version starting from 2.3.60 and onwards are now completely compiled with JAVA 11 due to a lot of incompatibilities between the Version JAVA (SDK) 8 and 11.

In particular, a “new” error message arise which caused already problems in the past. This occurrence leads rather to the external JDK Support or mismatch of the used JDK Version.

If you are using SAP GUI 7.70 together with the SAP HANA Studio, you probably encountered that the Internet Explore 11 is not supported anymore. So you have to switch at both locations (GUI and Studio/Eclipse) to the Microsoft Edge (based on Chromium) Support.

      Can I ask you to add a tag for ABAP Development, since it's relevant to ADT as well.
