Microsoft still pursuing Java developers

Microsoft Corp. is continuing its pursuit of Java developers.

The company on Wednesday issued a beta release of Version 3.0 of the JLCA (Java Language Conversion Assistant) tool, which is designed for moving Java code to Microsoft's Visual C# .Net and .Net Framework.

Featured in version 3.0 is the ability to convert J2EE 1.3 applications including JSP and EJB. J2EE 1.3 and JDK libraries can be converted.

An alphabet soup of other Java technologies can be moved over also, including EJB, JAAS (Java Authentication and Authorization Service), JCE (Java Cryptography Extension), JMS (Java Message Service), JNDI (Java Naming and Directory Interface), and RMI (Remote Method Invocation), according to Microsoft.

Client conversion also has been boosted, with deeper support for migrating Swing applications, according to Microsoft.

Applications and services converted with JLCA will run only in the .Net Framework.

Users interested in joining the beta program can log on to http://www.beta.microsoft.com, select "Sign in as Guest," enter "JLCA3" as the guest ID, and select the "Java Language Conversion 3.0" link, the company said.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
