NetRexx is a programming and scripting language that can support your need to get products to market easier, faster, and at lower costs.

NetRexx blends the clean, easy-to-learn syntax of Rexx with the robustness and portability of the Java™ environment. The result is a language tuned for both scripting and application development, and designed for both interpretation and compilation – a truly general-purpose language.

  • NetRexx is an effective alternative to the Java language, letting you create applications and applets for the Java environment faster and more easily than by programming in Java.
  • Being very system-independent, NetRexx offers the advantages of portability to almost any operating system that supports the Java 1.1 toolkit and a compiler that includes the JVM.
  • NetRexx 2.02 is the NetRexx reference implementation for Java 1.1 and Java 1.2, and will only run correctly on a Java 1.1.2 (or later) platform.
