eCube Systems Extends NXTware Remote Development Platform to Linux

NXTware Remote, a distributed development platform using Eclipse developed for OpenVMS, now works for the Linux platform.

Houston, Texas. MAY 19, 2016

eCube Systems, a leader in legacy systems evolution, today announced the addition of the Linux platform to its NXTware product line, NXTware Remote Server and NXTware Remote Studio.

The products, marketed jointly as NXTware Remote, work together to make it easier for teams of developers to develop code on local workstations running Eclipse -- to compile, debug and deploy on a remote OpenVMS or Linux server.

Previously, NXTware Remote development wizards and tools were only available on OpenVMS – taking advantage of a distributed development environment, where they could offload development resources to a workstation. Now with NXTware Remote for Linux, advanced development functions on OpenVMS can now be used for linux so that developers on both platforms can share the same interface, saving time, reducing costs and speeding development. Customers continue to look for simpler and faster means to develop and deploy applications. The new NXTware Remote suite of tools for Linux servers help customers, who have standardized on Eclipse, to gain the benefits of the distributed development on Windows, Linux or Mac.

"Until now, OpenVMS customers migrating to Linux had to train their developers on different skills," said Kevin Barnes, Professional Services Manager, eCube Systems. "Now with NXTware Remote, OpenVMS and Linux can share the same development platform, saving time, reducing costs and speeding delivery."

NXTware Remote allows developers to follow their usual Eclipse-based development processes to complete tasks on either OpenVMS or Linux. 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. The same technologies that made this distributed environment successful on OpenVMS will enable remote development for Linux. NXTware Remote for Linux supports all its existing functions including remote login, browsing, editing, debugging and advanced developer tools in COBOL, Fortran and C/C++.
