One is accessed via tha HANA Instances page as seen below:
and as you can see this is an old version and looks significantly different:
and there is the other one (accessed via subscriptions menu) which is the up-to-date version and has many other capabilities:
So are these two IDEs different in terms of purpose?
As far as I understand, the second IDE(the new one) is used for local development and the application developed there can be deployed to HANA later on (the first one does not have any options related to deployment but it provides direct development on HANA) . Also there are other things that confuses me:
Can the second IDE connect to a HANA instance directly? We have xsjslib files that connects to the HANA DB and fetches data. ..or is the second editor is only for developing HTML5 applications without HANA connection?
Also in the this document it states that "If an HTML5 application requires connectivity to one or more back-end systems, destinations must be created or assigned". Can someone elaborate on this?
Thanks in advance.
Hi Candemir Doger,
These two IDEs are different in terms of purpose and capabilities:
SAP Web IDE
SAP HANA Web -based Development Workbench
Moving forward SAP plans to integrate those two environments to provide a consistent development experience for all platforms.
Hope this helps.
