Tool converts .Net code to Java

While Microsoft already has had a tool to migrate Java code to the company's .Net application development platform, Stryon is turning the tables.

Stryon's iNet product migrates applications and Web services from Visual Basic .Net, C#, and J# to Java without the need to rewrite the code, according to Stryon.

"The way the product works is that you take the Microsoft intermediate code and convert it to pure J2EE code," said Jim Stewart, CEO of Stryon. Major drivers for the product include users wishing to move .Net applications off Windows and over to Linux and consolidation of .Net applications on Linux-based mainframes, Stewart said. He said it is fast becoming the norm for shops to have both Java and .Net applications.

.Net applications distributed throughout an organization can be consolidated onto Java-enabled platforms in the datacenter, according to Stryon. Applications can be redeployed to Java application servers such as IBM WebSphere, BEA Systems WebLogic, or JBoss. Also, iNet can be used to enable supply chain partners to integrate their Java applications with an iNet user's business processes.

Developers using iNet can work with the Visual Studio.Net development tool without being tied to Microsoft's runtime, Stryon said. "With our tool, people really absolutely can stay in their Microsoft Visual Studio development environment," Stewart said.

iNet also converts .Net class libraries such as Core, ADO.Net, XML, and ASP.Net.

Stryon's offering counters Microsoft's own Java Language Conversion Assistant utility for moving Java code over to .Net. The Microsoft offering is free; Stryon charges for its software.

Stryon's iNet already is shipping. Prices range from US$995 for deploying to a Linux or Wintel system to US$9,995 for Unix deployment and US$19,995 for mainframe deployment. The product also is available for a free 30-day evaluation period at http://www.stryon.com

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
