SAP Cloud Platform Maven Plugin

SAP offers a Maven plugin to support Java developers in using Maven to develop SAP Cloud Platform applications.

Account

You need to have an SAP Cloud Platform account. If you don't have one yet, you can sign up for a free developer account at http://hana.ondemand.com.

SDK

This plugin allows you to conveniently call the SAP Cloud Platform console client and its commands from Maven. Most commands that are supported by the console client are also available as goals in this plugin. To use the plugin, you require an installed SAP Cloud Platform SDK for Neo environment.

The SDK can be downloaded and installed from the SAP Cloud Platform Tools page. You can also run the install-sdk goal that this plugin offers to install the SAP Cloud Platform SDK for Neo environment. The plugin has been published to Maven Central for all Java runtimes supported by the SAP Cloud Platform SDK for Neo environment (under the same version as the SDK). Using the install-sdk goal will ensure that you install the right SAP Cloud Platform SDK for Neo environment and is therefore recommended.

Usage

General instructions on how to use the plugin, its goals, and parameters can be found on the usage page.
