Update: SMP 3 was released. HANA Cloud Platform mobile services (HCPms, cloud version of SMP) supports all Kapsel Plugins. HCPms replaced SMP on Cloud.

SAP Kapsel is a set of plugins for Apache Cordova (open source) that provides a subset of the capabilities provided by Hybrid web container, and it is replacing the HWC in SMP 3. ie SMP 3 will not have HWC apps, we have to use these plugins during the development of hybrid apps.

Since Kapsel is a part of SMP 3, and SMP 3 is not yet released I was looking for a way to test the Kapsel plugins and found it working with SMP on HANA cloud. But I am not sure whether all kapsel plugins are officially supported by SMP on Cloud since the cloud version has difference with on premise. If you are interested to try Kapsel Logon plugin in an Android device you can follow these steps.
