Dear community,

The latest releases of SAP Business Application Studio contain several new features that support you in building great applications and extending SAP solutions. This blog post highlights some of the new features.


Develop Multitenant Application with SAP Business Application Studio

Imagine you developed a great Cloud Application Programming Model (CAP) application in SAP Business Application Studio and want to share it with multiple consumers. SAP Business Application Studio now supports you in creating a multitenant (SaaS) application, which you can share among several consumer subaccounts within your SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) global account. To enable the use of your deployed CAP application for multiple consumers, SAP Business Application Studio uses the CAP multitenancy ability. This allows you to separate the database and authorizations for different tenants. With multitenant applications, you can improve the adoption of your applications deployed on the SAP BTP.

Database Development with SAP HANA XS Advanced in On-Premise Scenarios Using SAP Business Application Studio

For cloud scenarios, SAP HANA database development with SAP Business Application Studio was already possible in the past. But for on-premise scenarios, you had to use SAP Web IDE. With the new release of SAP Business Application Studio, this has changed: In on-premise scenarios, you can now use SAP Business Application Studio for database development with SAP HANA extended application services, advanced model (SAP HANA XS advanced). SAP HANA XS advanced provides an application platform for the SAP HANA in-memory database. Basically, SAP HANA XS advanced is the Cloud Foundry open-source Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) with some add-ons and adjustments provided by SAP.

For further information, see SAP HANA Developer Guide for XS Advanced Model (SAP Business App Studio).

Consume SAP S/4HANA and SAP S/4HANA Cloud Events Using SAP Business Application Studio

In SAP Business Application Studio, it was already possible to consume data from external services from the Service Center. Now, you can also consume events from SAP S/4 HANA or SAP S/4HANA Cloud when working in the Full-Stack Application Using Productivity Tools or in the Full Stack Cloud Application dev space. SAP S/4HANA or SAP S/4HANA Cloud publish events in various business scenarios, for example when a business partner in SAP S/4 HANA or SAP S/4HANA Cloud is created or changed. With SAP Business Application Studio, you can now explore those events from the Service Center by adding them to your project. You can then consume the events by adding an application logic. This application logic defines how your application reacts when a certain event is received.

For further information, see Add SAP S/4HANA or SAP S/4HANA Cloud Events.
