Download: JNBridgePro's .NET/Tiger Interop Tool
JNBridge is offering a free download (for a limited license) of JNBridgePro 3.0, its latest Java/.NET interop tool. JNBridgePro 3.0 upgrades include: access to Java and .NET (Framework 2.0) generics, mapping between Java and .NET enums, enhanced support for end-to-end security for apps that run across .NET and Java.
JNBridgePro 3.0 optimized for interop between Microsoft's .NET Framework 2.0 and the "Tiger" Java Standard Edition (J2SE) 5.0, but also supports .NET Framework 1.0 and 1.1, and earlier versions of Java.
Inside JNBridge's "Interoperability Bridge"
for .NET to Java Applications
JNBridgePro enables software developers to join anything Java together with anything .NET across the platform boundary, whether the Java and .NET components are running in the same process or over a network. The JNBridgePro software creates an 'interoperability bridge' between Java and .NET by generating a set of proxies that expose both class APIs for both .NET and Java, and manage communications between those classes.
In specific, architect/dev users can explore Java or .NET classes with a proxy generator GUI, which also help devs determine classes should have their functionality exposed. JNBridgePro automatically generates the proxies, and will optionally find and expose all the necessary supporting classes.
Once the proxies are generated and added to a project, users can access the underlying Java classes from .NET (or .NET classes from Java). The .NET code runs on a .NET CLR (Common Language Runtime), and the Java code runs on any conformant Java Virtual Machine.
"Generics and enums, which are new in .NET 2.0 and J2SE 5.0, are crucial language extensions that increase type safety and reduce programming errors," JNBridge CTO Wayne Citrin said in a statement. "Prior to .NET 2.0, the SSL APIs weren't available for creating secure connected systems. JNBridgePro 3.0 enables developers to take full advantage of these important new language features and connect them across the Java/.NET boundary in a safe, easy-to-use, way."
Interop Design, Features in JNBridge
JNBridgePro supports interop requirements for a wide variety of mixed .NET and Java environments, including apps that run:
