As I promised, I have posted the JLCA 3.0 cheat sheet for the users on my Blogs. The aim of this exercise has been for the JLCA users to understand the conversion process using the Java Language Conversion Assistant 3.0 and the issues they might face during the conversion process. Here is the TOC of the Cheat Sheet.

 

Introduction

 

Java Language Conversion Assistant (JLCA henceforth) is a tool that provides support for the conversion of software written in VJ++ and Java to Microsoft’s Visual C# .NET and .NET Framework. JLCA 3.0 is the latest version of the tool. It supports conversion of a majority of Java’s APIs and Java technologies supported by J2SE 1.3 and J2EE 1.3. It also addresses important issues of reducing the compilation errors and improving the conversion coverage and user experience as compared to the previous versions of the tool.
