As Sun moves further into the cliuyd I think you'll discover more programmers/analysts wanting to fully leverage
multiple cores.  To do this eventually people will turn to parallel programming such as MPI.

Support is needed for parallel programming tool chains and debugging.

Eclipse Parallel tools platform



Use case:
I write a Ruby/JRuby MPI script (and so abstract buffer and type issues) using netbeans on my single core/cpu laptop to
do some work.  
I fire up an opensolaris AMI of type large or extra large.  
I connect to the opensolaris desktop using NoMachine (NX).
I test, and debug if necessary, my script when run across the 4-8 cores of the single AMI.
I start several AMI's and configure them as a cluster.
Still using the opensolaris-NX desktop, I test and debug the Ruby/JRuby script, this time running on the cluster of
Now I'm ready to deploy my script that runs N times faster.

Currently this is not possible using netbeans.
