How to develop for T1000?

Hello Everybody

My company is giving its first steps into moving some Windows app to Solaris 10,, we have some basic questions.
We selected the T1000 (UltraSparc T) as server platform to run the app.
We purchased one Sun Ultra 45 UltraSparc IIIi.
I'm planning to use NetBeans to develop my app.
I know I can use the Ultra 45 to install and run netBeans.
Questions:
Can another developer use my NetBeans on my Ultra 45 remotely from the LAN? without having to be seated on the workstation?
Can I use the server T1000 for development purposes? Like, installing Netbeans on that one. I know the server doesn’t have video, keyboard and mouse (is suppose to be accessed only from the network),, so , can I install NetBeans there or other development tools and access them over the network?
Can I build apps on my Ultra 45, compile them for the T1000 processor and then move them to the server? How would be the proper way to build app for the T1000?
Thanks everybody!!

Well, it is certainly the case that multiple users can access netbeans at the same time on the server. I couldn't tell you about the performance characteristics though. You will definitely be able to have more than one developer at a time, but how many more before it grinds, I don't know. But you can use both machines.

1. You should be able to use NFS to mount netbeans on one system while it lives on another. Is that what you meant?
2. You can use the X window system to open a window on the local system of an application (like netbeans) on the remote system.
3. The Ultra 45 and the T1000 are binary compatible. Any application built on one should run on the other, unless you specifically build for the T1000. You can specify the T1000 arch if you are using the Sun Studio Compilers by adding these flags: -fast -xtarget=ultraT1 -xarch=v9b
If you do use them, then the binary will not run on the Ultra 45. All binaries that run on the Ultra 45 will also run on
the T1000.

Hello
Thanks for your answers.
Basically I want to see if we can have more than one dev on each of the systems.
Lets say on the Ultra 45, I know I can install Netbeans, see its GUI, etc,, can another user, from a different machine (for example a Virtual Machine on VMWARE using Solaris X86), open a remote session to the Ultra 45 and access the GUI from Netbeans?. I dont know, maybe I need to install NetBeans on the VM, but then, Can I still connect that GUI to the remote machine?

I have those two machines and I have 6 Developers, basically Im trying to figure out whats the maximum use I can give to those two machine before I have to buy more, and I do, I want to see I should buy more Ultra 45 or more T1000 (depending If I can use the last one for development and what are the benefits)

Thanks!!!

I'm going to post some more questions, on the same topic, but I think is fair granting you the points now for this one.
Thanks
