eCube Systems Brings Remote Eclipse Development to HP OpenVMS

NXTware Remote Server and NXTware Remote Studio, an Eclipse plug-in, improve HP OpenVMS productivity without specialized skills

Houston, Texas. November 11, 2008

eCube Systems, a leader in legacy systems evolution, today announced new additions to its NXTware product line, NXTware Remote Server and NXTware Remote Studio for the HP OpenVMS platform.

The products, marketed jointly as NXTware Remote, work together to make it easier for teams of developers to edit code on local workstations running Eclipse -- to compile, debug and deploy on a remote HP OpenVMS server. Now developers can be more productive on OpenVMS without specialized training using the Eclipse IDE.

"Previously, OpenVMS development was treated as a separate entity by corporate IT – with a different development environment, different skills, and different teams," said Peter Marquez, VP Sales and Marketing, eCube Systems. "Now with NXTware Remote, OpenVMS can be treated like any other platform, saving time, reducing costs and speeding development."

"Customers continue to look for simpler and faster means to develop and deploy applications," Jennifer Millier, vice president, Mission-critical Business Solutions, HP. "The new eCube NXTware Remote tool for HP OpenVMS and HP Integrity servers help customers, who have standardized on Eclipse, to gain the benefits of the OpenVMS platform. This includes the ability to easily write code using the most current and commonly used tools, for better operation efficiency."

NXTware Remote allows developers to follow their usual Eclipse-based development processes to complete tasks on OpenVMS. No changes are required to their routine. Users can quickly, compile, debug and deploy code remotely on OpenVMS from their local workstation, while easily integrating with source code management systems.

The server component of NXTware Remote, NXTware Remote Server, executes all of the operations called from Eclipse and returns results instantaneously.

These technologies were specifically designed to work with HP Integrity servers and legacy HP Alpha implementations. NXTware Remote fully supports all aspects of Eclipse development including Java and AJAX. Soon to be released versions of NXTware Remote will support development in Basic, COBOL and C/C++, as well as many other remote hardware platforms.
