    J# Browser Controls v1.1b now available


    J# Browser Controls v1.1b is now available for download


    What are J# Browser Controls?

    J# Browser Controls provide developers with the ability to migrate Java applet source code to run on the .NET Framework. This was developed primarily for MSJVM migrations, but can be used for migrating other applets as well.


    Once migrated, J# Browser Controls have full access to the .NET Framework. We’ve already seen J# Browser Controls play a critical role for customers who want to migrate away from the MSJVM. One such customer is the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. A major benefit of using J# Browser Controls to perform this type of migration is that very little (if any) source code changes are required to compile and run the applet as a J# Browser Control.


    What’s new in this release?

    Version 1.1b replaces version 1.1 and adds support for our top requested features. Version 1.1b adds scripting support (interaction of J# Browser Controls with script functionality on a Web page) and offline support (optional hosting of J# Browser Controls without requiring a Web server). J# Browser Controls v1.1b also provides support for the Netscape JavaScript API functionality. For detailed information, please view the white paper. Localized versions of the J# Browser Controls v1.1b runtime and documentation should be coming online sometime in August.

    Cool new sample app: FotoVision


    This is a sample best practices application that shows off working with lots of technologies.

    I like the way they have turned this into a Windows Forms, ASP.NET, Web services, and .NET Compact Framework sample. I haven't had time to dig into this much but it looks fun.

    PS: Don't tell them they spelled “Photo” wrong. <g>

    "Resources for Java Developers" dev center live


    We've finally got the “Resources for Java Developers” dev center live on MSDN thanks to a lot of hard work from Dan, Kent, and others.

    Check it out here:

    Please let me know what other content you'd like to see. This is for Java developers who are interesting in learning about Microsoft .NET technologies for purposes of development, code migration, interoperability, etc.
