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.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
