Modeling with the BW Modeling Tools in EclipseLocate this document in the navigation structure

The BW Modeling Tools provide an Eclipse-based integrated modeling environment for the management and maintenance of BW metadata objects. You can use the BW Modeling tools for BW systems that run on the SAP HANA database.

The main objective of this is to support BW metadata modelers in today’s increasingly complex BI environments by offering flexible, efficient and state-of-the-art modeling tools. These tools integrate with ABAP Development Tools as well as with SAP HANA modeling and the consumption of SAP HANA elements in BW metadata objects, like Open ODS views or CompositeProviders. The BW Modeling Tools have powerful UI (user interface) capabilities.

This documentation provides information about how you can set up projects in order to perform BW modeling tasks. It also describes how to work with BW metadata objects in the Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE). In particular, it describes how to define BW metadata objects like CompositeProviders and Open ODS Views that provide native Eclipse-based editors.
