Austin, Tex. - A new development tool kit from Metrowerks allows developers of Net services software applications to quickly and easily create Novell NetWare applications, NetWare Loadable Modules (NLMs) and device drivers using the popular CodeWarrior Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and tool set.

CodeWarrior Professional Development Kit (PDK) for NetWare, Version 4.0, an add-on to CodeWarrior for Windows, Version 7.0, provides developers with the capability to edit, compile, and debug NLM applications for NetWare using C, C++, and Java languages. Developers can also take advantage of Novell eDirectory and other network services available on Novell's intelligent network server platform, to add intelligence, manageability, and security to cross-platform network solutions that can be distributed across the enterprise and the World Wide Web.

'Software application developers are a critical part of the success of Novell's Net services solutions,' said Michael Simpson, vice president of platform solutions for Novell. 'Metrowerks is a key partner as its CodeWarrior development tools make it easy to develop such solutions and get them to market as fast as possible.'

Additional features of the PDK include:

  • source-level debugging capabilities, such as ability to pause, restart, and re-enable thread execution across multiple threads;

  • ability to control thread execution on multiple processors;

  • ability to follow debugging sessions across multiple NLMs and to view source for multiple NLMs at the same time;

  • support for Kernel aware debugging; and

  • support for remote debugging via TCP/IP or Serial protocol.

'The PDK for NetWare provides another popular platform to target for the many developers already familiar with the CodeWarrior IDE and tool set,' said John Smolucha, vice president of marketing, Metrowerks. 'The powerful CodeWarrior IDE and tool set, combined with an industry leading network operating system, NetWare 6, make it easier than ever to create network solutions.'

The CodeWarrior Professional Development Kit for NetWare is hosted on Windows 98, Windows NT (Service Pack 6), and Windows 2000 (Service Pack 2) operating systems, and targets NetWare 5 and NetWare 6.

The tool kit was developed by Metrowerks' Software Solutions Group, which provides custom software solutions for desktop and embedded systems.
