You can use the Java Language Conversion Assistant (JLCA) tool to convert Visual J++ projects, Java-language applications, and applet projects to Visual C# .NET or Visual C# 2005 projects. However, JLCA cannot convert a Visual J# .NET project to a Visual C# .NET or Visual C# 2005 project.
By converting Visual J++ or Java-language applications to Visual C# .NET or Visual C# 2005 , you can use your existing code base and the properties of the .NET Framework. JLCA does not modify your existing project. It creates a new Visual C# .NET or Visual C# 2005 project that is based on the original project. The new Visual C# .NET or Visual C# 2005 project contains all the new Visual C# .NET code that can be generated automatically from the existing Visual J++ or Java-language code.
Any errors, warnings, or issues that are generated during the conversion process appear in a conversion report after JLCA has generated the new project. These errors, warnings, and issues are also noted in comments in the converted code to help you to manually convert the parts of the project that JLCA cannot convert automatically.
