< EclipseLink‎ | Development‎ | Incubator‎ | Extensions
Revision as of 05:09, 26 February 2013 by (Talk | contribs) (Documentation)

Note: This page describes an extension of EclipseLink that is part of the EclipseLink incubator. Incubator projects are published so the community can use them either to progress towards having them included in the main product, or to use in their own implementations. They have been tested to varying levels and as such, we recommend doing your own testing before including any of this code in a production-level product.


  • bug 380226 (Database Platform for SAP HANA Database) - Initial bug for taking HANAPlatform to the incubator (resolved)
  • bug 383862 (Preparing Database Platform for SAP HANA Database for Promotion into trunk) - Bug for collecting/tracking test issues


This is a subclass of DatabasePlatform that can be used by customers using the SAP HANA database.


Detailed information on SAP HANA Appliance Software (which comprises SAP HANA Database) are found here:

The HANA platform is configured in the persistence.xml by the following property:

<property name="" value="HANA"/>

Limitations of the Platform

  • Reserved SQL keywords cannot be used as table, column or sequence names. Use a different name, or enclose the name in double quotes. For example: @Column(name="\"LANGUAGE\"")
  • Pessimistic locking adds 'FOR UPDATE' to the SELECT statement, and cannot be used with queries that use DISTINCT.
  • Pessimistic locking cannot be used with queries that select from multiple tables - see bug 384129
  • The LockNoWait option of Pessimistic Locking cannot be used; it is ignored when specified (i.e. only 'FOR UPDATE' is added to the SELECT statement).
  • Bulk update and delete operations that require multiple tables to be accessed cannot be used (e.g. bulk operation on an entity that is part of an inheritance hierarchy, UpdateAll and DeleteAll queries).
  • '= NULL' and '<> NULL' cannot be used for null comparisons in the WHERE clause. Use 'IS (NOT) NULL' instead.
  • Scrollable cursors are not supported - see bug 384116.
  • Query timeouts are not supported - see bug 384135.
