    Visual J++ is a developer tool, compiler, that can be used in developing
    programs in Java.
    Other compilers are availble to write programs in Java: JBuilder from Inprise/Borland
    and the Java
    Development Kit from SUN to name a couple.

    Depending on the version of J++, it can be used to write programs that comply
    to the Java 2 specifications.

    Do you know what version of J++ is comparable to Java 2. I have a copy of
    J++ version 1.1 but I can find in any of the documentation if it is Java
    2 or JDK 1.2 compatible.

    Is there a better developers tool out there that we should focus on using?
    I am currently using Forte for Java Community Edition and I am not very
    impressed.

    I believe MS java is static at jdk 1.1.4 - no where near java 2 and not
    likely to every get there.

    forget about visual j++. microsoft has abandoned it long time ago. they put
    out rumors of creating something called Cool but
    then abandoned it also. if you don't mind keep paying MS, check
    out their latest junk called c#. you can at least get a good laugh...

    J++ was always a bit too convoluted to use with ease, but C# is free and its
    actually quite good, and its looking like it could be very very powerful
    indeed given that you can use almost any language your familiar with to
    develop your solutions, no need to learn anything new, just alter what your
    doing a bit. So Java devs, VB devs, C devs, Cobol devs, etc will not need
    to reaquire skills to use it. Doesn't matter how you look at it - the
    market hype is real enough, it may well suprise lots of people.
