Results are finally in. I got 277.3 points and finished in the top 20% or the course participants. Looking forward the next course in September on mobile development at open.sap.com.
Recently I installed SAP HANA studio on my Mac. I was thrilled to find this jewel tucked inside private snapshot on AWS. After the volume was mounted to my Dev AWS system I used Cyberduck (my favorite FTP client) to pull it down. I later found out I can download it here:
You can get any of the three operating systems flavors here (Windows, Linux, and now Mac).
Installation was easy but I ran into a problem when I went install the SAPUI5 plugin. The detail log repeated the same message over and over claiming which stated studio could not write or create to the following directory:
This directory location seems to be controlled by the config.ini file located in the configuration folder in the hbstudio folder(where the HANA studio is located). It was pretty obvious to me that this directory needed to be created. I was not really looking forward to creating it and all the subdirectories. Turns out all I need to do was create the root level direct /HDB with the following commands:
sudo mkdir /HDB
chmod 777 /HDB <--I am guessing the user running HANA at least needs rw access to this directory
after this installing plugins worked great. Incidentally I use location https://tools.hana.ondemand.com/juno to get all the plugins for my HANA studio including the ABAP and SAPUI5 plugin. I hope this blog help anyone who runs into the same issue.
At long last, a SAP eclipse based IDE that does not require Windows (one less reason to have a VM). Not sure yet if the repository client will work. Going to try that next.
