New feature in NetBeans 6.9: Terminal and Remote Terminal Emulators

A new feature just added to the IDE, at least I think so :), is the new option to use terminal directly inside the IDE. The terminal has all features all use at Ubuntu terminal so, it is pretty awesome for me. To access this go to 'Window > Output > Terminal' or 'Window > Output > Remote Terminal'. Take a look here a image about this new feature.


Thanks Michael to point me this new feature. :)

Crazy....
does it also work on windows to access remote servers ?

I am not sure about how it works in Windows yet. I will found out some additional documentation and update the post asap about this. Thanks for your question.

I would really like to see how it works with special keystrokes, non-ascii characters, and curses.

It isn't git integration, but at least I don't have to switch to a terminal to add/commit, and it's handy for testing interactive command-line applications.

Best feature in NetBeans ever! ;-)

I've tried this in Windows 7 with cygwin to no avail! However the remote terminal connected to my Ubuntu server through ssh.

It does work ok with windows, I use it from my work windows machine to administer RHEL servers, the one gripe I have is the lack of putty style command recall (up arrow etc) add that and it is perfect.
