Review: SQLScript For SAP Hana

If you’re an SAP developer, you’ve likely heard of SQLScript. But do you actually know how to code with it?

If the answer is no, don’t worry—many of your peers are in the same situation. Thankfully, SAP Press has released a new book on coding with SQLScript for SAP Hana.

What will you learn?

SQLScript for SAP Hana begins with a look at Hana and why SQLScript is the perfect language to use when developing on the in-memory platform. From there, it provides a complete primer on SQLScript, including its expressiveness, optimized nature, and ability to combine with other languages when necessary.

Explore SQL language elements by learning syntax, creating simple routines, and running it in the SQL console. Next, get all the information you need in regards to data types and the function library. Learn how to implement Hana database procedures via imperative and declarative script. Then discover how SQLScript works when paired with Abap, standard SQL, SAP BW on Hana, and BW/4 Hana.


Coding is only half the battle. It needs to be tested, optimized, debugged. With this book, analyze and troubleshoot your programs and finally read and write to the Hana database with ease!

Other highlights include:

  • Hana Studio
  • SAP Web IDE for Hana
  • Read and write database access
  • Flow logic
  • Tables and views
  • Sequences and triggers
  • Abap managed database procedures

Who is this book for?

The author of this book, Joerg Brandeis, is a leading trainer of SQLScript in Germany and wanted to write this tome as a textbook. New to SQLScript? This book is for you!

Anyone working on a development project within a Hana environment would do well to have a copy of this on their desk. Thinking of joining a company running SAP? Impress interviewers with the knowledge you’ll glean here.
