Access to SAP HANA XSA Objects

SAP HANA XSA (SAP HANA Extended Application Services Advanced Model) is the successor version of SAP HANA XSC.

SAP Web IDE for SAP HANA and SAP HANA Cockpit are used to develop and manage the native HANA objects in XSA. Deployment takes place (using HDI (SAP HANA Deployment Infrastructure) as HDI objects in HDI containers that usually represent database schemas in the SAP HANA database.

Special ABAP-managed HDI container (AMHCs) can be defined for HDI objects accessed from ABAP. SAP HANA Transport for ABAP (HTA) provides these containers with an interface to the Change and Transport System. The definition of an AMHC includes a logical HDI schema specified directly as a logical schema in the AMDP macro $ABAP.schema. This makes simple access to HDI objects possible from AMDP.
