Sorry this is a bit late (that’s what I get for falling behind in my
VAME is a cross-development environment. That is, you use the IDE on
Windows or Linux to create jar files (or .jxe pre-linked files using
SmartLinker). You then run the code on a runtime target such as
Neutrino. Therefore, you install the IDE on windows or Linux, and
then install one of the runtimes (which is a VM port for a specific
processor and OS) on the target.
Of course, from a QNX RTP perspective, the requirement of Windows or
Linux as the IDE host looks bad. That is obviously something that
both IBM/OTI and QSSL would like to fix in the future.
Are you sure the instructions are non-existant? There are readme files
for each runtime download plus there is a pretty large reference
manual. There is also a VAME-specific newsgroup (ibm.software.vame at

Ok, so I’m an admitted QNX newbie and I have downloaded all of the IBM/OTI
VisualAge Micro Edition but am dumbfounded as to why I have to download it
in Windows or Linux to use in QNX. All of this stuff is sitting in a
directory in Windows called VAME 1.3. What do I do with it from here? IBM’s
instructions are non existant.
Thanks for any help you can give.
