    C# and J# ?!


    What is the difference between C# and J# ?
    I am confused because i thought that microft wants to replace java with C#
    and now there is a beta version for J#.

    C# is MS's new ECMA standard langauge that borrows heavily from C/C++/Java
    (and a couple of concepts from Delphi).

    J# is essentially a version of J++ for the .NET platform. It accepts the
    Java-esque language that J++ did but produces .NET code rather than Java
    bytecodes.

    Unless you have J++ migration needs, best to give J# a miss IMO. Especially
    since there is a rudimentary Java-to-C#/.NET code conversion tool from MS
    too. Disappointingly, it only works for JDK1.1.x and even then it isn't a
    100% reliable. It's developers ArtinSoft plan an Enterpri$e version.......
    ;-)

    The two languages, C# and J# are very similar. C# was a cross between C++ and Java, in an attempt to replace Java (as you say). But
    remember that dotNet is also about allowing developers to develop in any language. J# is so close to C#, that it likely require
    minimal effort on Micro$ofts part to product. So, it was worth the effort.
