The videos (ALV and FPM on SAP HANA, ALV transformation) and document concerning ALV on HANA are using features which we delivered in NW7.40.

*NW 7.40 SP0: ALV on HANA is not released for productive usage - only for test purposes

**Frontend Features require SAPGUI 7.30 Patch 5 (see note 1883738)

*** SAPUI 7.40 SP06 is delivered with NW 7.40 SP05 or separately. As UI delivers on a faster tact, we continue with the UI SPs

****Fields in SAP HANA views do not refer to data elements, hence there are no texts or further DDIC conveniences available. These elements must be handled via the field catalogue API. These features can also be used for DDIC views and tables, but normally they are not necessary in this context
