eCube Systems Announces NXTware Studio for HP OpenVMS

Enhanced version of the powerful Eclipse IDE available to enterprises developing and maintaining HP OpenVMS applications.

Houston, Texas. June 18, 2008

eCube Systems, a leader in systems evolution, today announced NXTware Studio, an enterprise version of the Eclipse IDE (integrated development environment) for the HP OpenVMS Platform.

NXTware Studio is an integrated development environment for OpenVMS running on HP Integrity servers. In NXTware Eclipse, eCube provides the standard Eclipse platform for contemporary development and wizards that simplify Web services development with AXIS2. NXTware Eclipse also includes tooling that enables OpenVMS developers to create Web 2.0 composite ("Mash-up") applications.

"eCube is the first and only company to bring Eclipse to HP OpenVMS," said Kevin Barnes, eCube Systems' CEO. "eCube was able to overcome the challenges of Eclipse's dependencies on non-OpenVMS-native libraries, enabling the OpenVMS community to take advantage of this platform."

eCube will offer enterprise subscriptions for NXTware Studio, targeting Java developers on OpenVMS. Under the subscription, eCube will regularly test and certify third-party plug-ins for use on OpenVMS. NXTware Studio will be available later this month.

Support for C/C++ and COBOL (Eclipse CDT) on OpenVMS will be available in both the RPC and CORBA versions of eCube's NXTware IME (Integrated Maintenance Environment). Both versions are expected to be available for OpenVMS and other HP platforms in July.

"Customers can increase productivity with HP OpenVMS and eCube's NXTware Studio," said Ann McQuaid, general manager, OpenVMS Systems unit, HP. "HP OpenVMS has been a trusted platform for 30 years, and now, with eCube, it can simplify the integration of established and new services."
