Running SAP HANA Studio on Linux Mint 14

Post by Hay Bouten » Sat Feb 23, 2013 8:23 pm

Not supported, but because it can :D

Before installing SAP HANA Studio some additional packages need to be installed.
  • libjpeg62 - is in the Mint repository.
  • libffi5_3.0.10-3_amd64
  • libmozjs10d_10.0.12esr-1_amd64
  • xulrunner-10.0_10.0.12esr-1_amd64
  • Sun Java 1.7

SUM for HANA doesn't work with linux Mint 14. There is a problem with the integrated browser. SUM complains about the browser being to old.

This looks to be related to xulrunner, HANA Studio needs 1.9.2 and linux Mint 14 as no xulrunner package in the repository. Installing the correct version from the Mozila site doesn't work.

Ubuntu has removed support for XULRunner in repository, so MINT 14 will also not support XULRunner. Downloading older XULRunner versions didn't work either. Setting the -Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.XULRunnerPath= in the hdbstudio.ini didn't work.

So as an final, but nice, solution I now run HANA Studio remotely over an ssh session.

Run SAP HANA Studio via a ssh session
  • Do a ssh login on your HANA server and add a -X to the command line like the example below.

    Code: Select all

    ssh -X <username>@<hostname>
    Replace <username> with a user on your SAP HANA server.
    Replace <hostname> with the hostname of the SAP HANA server.
  • run SAP HANA Studio with the command:

    Code: Select all

    /usr/sap/<SID>/hdbstudio/hdbstudio
  • Make a launcher and combine the two commands like this

    Code: Select all

    ssh -X <username>@<hostname> /usr/sap/<SID>/hdbstudio/hdbstudio
    and you will be able to start SAP HANA Studio on your server with one click.
    Replace <SID> with the SAP ID of your SAP HANA server.
If you don't like the password pop-up, you could make a ssh auto login. Be aware that ssh auto login can be a security risk. How to ssh auto login.

Perhaps you can tell Eclipse what xulrunner sources to use?
Set the path of xulrunner in the application file (eclipse.ini):

Code: Select all

-Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.XULRunnerPath=/Path_where_xulrunner_is extracted/xulrunner/
source of this quoted wisdom

Nope, already tried different versions and setting the hdbstudio.ini parameter to point to the correct path, but without any success. In SAP HANA SPS06 SUM is replaced by SAP HANA Lifecycle Manager (SAP HLM). I think that is going to work because it look like HLM is using the HANA XS engine. I need to investigate a bit more.

Just tried Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED) 11 SP3 and it works perfect with SAP HANA Studio. After installing xulrunner 1.9.2 even SAP HANA Lifecycle Managr works.
