Hi,

I would like to have some opinions about learning WFC and MFC.. Is it worth to learn WFC and MFC if I have already known java..

Because most of the critical appications are written in using c++.. That is why I am thinking that if I am becoming application developer then I have to MFC.. They run much faste, but will they on Unix ??


Thank you.. Your thoughts would greatly appreciated..

I would say WFC would be a bad idea, it ties your Java code to Windows, and JFC is just so neat, I'd say use that, hands down.

As for MFC, It is only designed to work with Microsoft Visual C++, so MFC code can, to the best of my knowledge, only be used if linked using Visual C++. That means that if you work with MFC you are tied to one IDE, and tied to Windows, as MFC code will not work on Windows, unlike Java code, and JFC.

Hope this helps,

Hi jwilcox ,

I understand what you say. However, most big companies, like ComputerAssociate still looking for C++ skill.. The company I work for, the application written using some part of Wfc.. it runs quite fast..that's sparks my interest in using WFC.. Is there any good web site, or online tutorial that you recommend..

Thanks

I don't know of any sites out there, I've avoided WFC, I figure if I want to use some foundation classes with java, JFC is the best way to go. You might want to go to msdn.microsoft.com and see if they have anything there that can be of service.

Hope this helps,
