Here's one to JLCA

I am a believer in the fact that it's never too late to get started. It's more to do with the zeal and the enthusiasm to carry one forward along way which really matters. So here I go…

I work as a Program Manager for the Java Migration Team at Microsoft. The Java Migration team currently owns two products viz. Visual J# language and Java Language Conversion Assistant (JLCA hence forth). To get started, there is a lot of information about J# and JLCA available at their respective websites. So I would try and avoid those areas and repetitions in my blogs, barring a few.

Though my main area focus area of work is the JLCA tool, feel free to get in touch with me even in case you have some specific J# queries and I would try to answer the same to the best of my abilities, or help you get in touch with someone at the product team.

What is JLCA? (Just in case you are new to this)…

In a one liner I can say: JLCA is a tool that automatically converts existing Java-language code to Visual C# language for developers who want to move existing applications to the .NET Framework.

JLCA for the day

An updated version of the whitepaper “ Moving Java Applications to .NET ” is now published and is available at this link. This whitepaper serves as a good starting point for first time developers who want to move their Java Applications to .NET Framework. It’s helpful for even old time users of JLCA in a way that it details the various levels of (package) support provided by J# and JLCA, comparison charts to help the user decide which path they should follow for migrations and links to the various associated resources.

Catch you soon with more!!!
