Visual J# .NET Beta One available for download!

Visual J# .NET is a development tool for Java-language developers who want to build applications and services on the Microsoft .NET Framework. Visual J# .NET joins more than 20 previously announced languages in its ability to target the .NET Framework and first-class XML Web services.

"With Visual J# .NET, Java-language developers can target XML Web services through the .NET Framework," said Tom Button, vice president of the Developer Division at Microsoft. "Integration is a fundamental principle of Microsoft .NET. Visual J# .NET underscores Microsoft's commitment to creating interoperability and choice of programming language for building XML Web services."

Visual J# .NET includes technology that enables customers to migrate Java-language investments to the .NET Framework. Existing applications developed with Visual J++ can be easily modified to execute on the .NET Framework, interoperate with other .NET languages and applications, and incorporate new .NET functionality such as ASP.NET, ADO.NET and Windows(R) Forms. Further, developers can use it to create entirely new .NET applications.

The beta release of Microsoft Visual J# .NET is available today from either the Microsoft Web site or from the MSDN(R) Download area for MSDN Universal customers, with a final release in the first half of next year.

To use Microsoft Visual J# .NET Beta 1, you need: Microsoft Visual Studio .NET Beta 2 (build 7.0.9254.0) English (US) version. Please see system requirements for Visual Studio .NET Beta 2. Windows 2000 Server or Professional, or Windows XP Professional RC Release.
