  • Support for debugging non-Java applications (C/C++, Fortran, Pascal, COBOL, and Basic) running on the OpenVMS machine remotely from inside the NetBeans IDE.
  • Enhanced password security.
  • SMB file share support for use with remote projects. The supported SMB products on the OpenVMS machine are Advanced Server and HP OpenVMS Common Internet File System (CIFS) Version 1.0, based on Samba V3.0.24.
  • Enhanced Remote Execute support, including foreign command support for .EXE files and automatic prompting for parameters for DCL command procedures and .EXE files.
  • Expanded 3GL file properties support. 3GL settings are now supported on a per file, per project, and global basis.

The NetBeans IDE, Distributed NetBeans client, and the IDE Server are provided free of charge. Support is provided with your OpenVMS operating system support contract and by the Distributed NetBeans development team.
