Visual J# .NET, First Native XML Web Services Tool for the Java Language, Nears Completion

Visual J# .NET, First Native XML Web Services Tool for the Java Language, Nears Completion

(March 20, 2002) -Microsoft has released the second beta of Microsoft® Visual J#? .NET, a development tool for Java-language developers who want to build applications and services on the Microsoft .NET Framework. Visual J# .NET is the first Java-language development tool to run on a platform offering native support for XML Web services. This support enables an easy transition for Java-language developers into the world of XML Web services and dramatically improves the interoperability of Java-language programs with existing software written in a variety of programming languages. Visual J# .NET helps Microsoft Visual J++® customers and other Java-language programmers take advantage of existing skills and code to fully exploit the .NET Platform.

Visual J# .NET is part of Microsoft's Java User Migration Path to Microsoft .NET (JUMP to .NET) strategy, which outlines a set of independently developed technologies to help programmers preserve, enhance, and migrate Java-language projects to the .NET Platform.

Key features include: * Full access to the .NET Framework. The .NET Framework provides the first and best platform with native support for XML Web services.

* Visual J# .NET is designed to take full advantage of the platform, including ASP.NET, ADO.NET, Windows® Forms, and XML Web services, as well as full cross-language integration.

* Integration with Visual Studio .NET. Visual J# .NET provides programming tools support through its integration with the award-winning Visual Studio®ß .NET integrated development environment.

* Visual J++ 6.0 upgrade tools. Visual J# .NET includes tools to automatically upgrade existing Visual J++ 6.0 projects and solutions to the new Visual Studio .NET format. These tools help ensure that a current Visual J++ 6.0 developer can easily move to Visual J# .NET and produce .NET applications and components.

The second beta release of Microsoft Visual J# .NET is available from either the Microsoft Web site at http://msdn.microsoft.com/visualj/jsharp/beta.asp or the MSDN® developer program Web site downloads area for MSDN Universal customers, with a final release due in the middle of 2002. Applications and services built with Visual J# .NET will run only on the .NET Framework, and will not run on any Java virtual machine. Visual J# .NET has been independently developed by Microsoft and is the property of Microsoft Corp. It is not endorsed or approved in any way by Sun Microsystems Inc.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
