With the delivery of SAP HANA SPS 09, we see the addition and extension of a great many of the development tools and languages used when performing SAP HANA development. This was perhaps the largest support package stack in the scope of developer-related features which SAP has delivered since SPS 05 first introduced SAP HANA extended application services and SAP HANA native development. Please note that you can now run the exercises of this course with SAP HANA, express edition.
