Hi Venkatesh

HANA XSA is based on Cloud Foundry, but they are not the same. There is more information to be found in this question: is HANA XS-Advanced actually Cloud Foundry on-premise?

If learning about Cloud Foundry and CAP is your goal, I suggest you set up a trial SAP Cloud Platform account and install the command line tools locally.

Hi Morten,

Thank you for your response.

As you said, my goal is to learn CAP. I thought of installing SAP Hana express edition on my PC and practice here instead of sap cloud platform.

Could I do it in SAP HANA EXPRESS instead of CF?

Thanks,

Venkatesh.

Hi sap.machineni

If you install the CAP tools on your machine, you can develop locally. You don't need HANA Express for that. You can deploy to SAP Cloud Platform, of course, but you can also run your apps locally, if you want to stay offline.

Hi Venkatesh,

in general, you can use the same development approaches on HANA Express and on Cloud Foundry. You can check https://help.sap.com/viewer/4505d0bdaf4948449b7f7379d24d0f0d/2.0.04/en-US/4050fee4c469498ebc31b10f2a... for an overview which modules / resources are available on HANA and/or CF.

And instead of the CF CLI, you need the XS CLI to deploy your application. See here for installation instructions: https://developers.sap.com/tutorials/hxe-ua-install-xs-xli-client.html

Kind regards,

Sebastian
