SAP Remains Invested in Open Source with Latest Platform Availability

SAP SE is reaffirming its commitment to open source with the availability of SAP Web IDE for SAP HANA.

“With the new SAP Web IDE for SAP HANA, developers can design, build and deploy Web applications based on the UI development toolkit for HTML5 (SAPUI5) and Node.js,” said Björn Goerke, executive vice president and corporate officer for SAP product and innovation technology at SAP SE.  “It also reaffirms our successful use of open source projects such as Eclipse Che in building a productive IDE for use in creating applications from the UI down to the database.”

SAP Web IDE, designed to support the development of applications, database models and user interfaces, for SAP HANA provides developers all the tools they need on one platform.

The new edition complements the existing SAP Web IDE, which is powered by SAP HANA Cloud Platform and is used daily by developers at SAP, partners and customers for the development of SAP Fiori apps, SAP’s new user experience approach.

SAP Web IDE for SAP HANA is based on Eclipse Che, a developer workspace and cloud integrated development environment (IDE), and is one of the first productive implementations of an IDE on Eclipse Che.

This reinforces SAP’s strong commitment to open source in general and to the Eclipse Foundation in particular.
