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
