    Default Mixed language project?

    I've never been a big fan of IDE's, but for my current project, I need to be able to develop, build, and do configuration management on both linux and Windows. Having toyed around with netbeans in the past, and knowing it works with multiple languages, I decided to give it a spin.

    The project involves both c++ and java (as well as scripts). From what I can tell, netbeans makes you choose between a java project or a c++ project. But what I have is a "software development" project involving multiple languages.

    Is there a good way to use netbeans for mixed language development, or is some other tool better suited to that?

    I'm not sure is there a better way than working on with a database and UNICODE. But I'm not sure how far it's easy to your project, specially on linux.

    My bad. I meant computer languages, such as Java and c++, not human languages.

    Are you saying that you want to use NetBeans for multiple languages?

    Actually you can use NetBeans for C/C++ developments are well. But you have to download the correct package from the NetBeans download page. Other than that you can work on with PHP as well. An Ruby too.

    Yes, netbeans works with all those languages, which is what caught my eye to begin with. My problem is, I don't have a 'java project' or a 'c++ project' or a 'php project'.

    I am building a large nonhomogeneous multi-OS multi-language 'project'. I need tools that will help me develop a system that uses java, c++, and scripts simultaneously, rather than as if they were all independent of eachother.

    So the question is, can I set up netbeans in a way that I can work the different languages as one project?
