I recently purchased Visual Studio .NET Architect and noticed that the install program didn't put J++ on my machine.  I'm sure I have read postings here that make reference to a .NET version of J++  So, is J++ somewhere on the Visual Studio .NET CDs?

Thanks

Yes and no. J++ is dead at Microsoft. If you look at C#, you can see that it is very similar to J++ (and open source Java). The difference is that Microsoft is now free to make any enhancements which support Wintel operating systems without being criticized for creating proprietary rather than open source code.

So, I'll have to continue to use J++ 6 to maintain platform-independent distributable components? Is that correct?

Or switch to a non-Microsoft IDE of course.

C# could become platform independent as well, IF others produce runtime environments for it to work with their operating systems.
It is designed to be similar to Java in that respect (though at the time, noone has done so and it runs only on Windows).

I'm still new to .NET, so this may be a simple question:  Can C# be packaged as a compiled component that runs on the client, similar to a java applet?  What about users of older versions of windows?  What about users of older versions of Internet Explorer, and users of other browsers running on Windows machines?

If you are looking for deployment similar to a java applet, you are interested in thin-client technology. Thin-client relies on a universal client like a browser. Java applets run in a browser, but you need to have a browser that understands Java or a Java plug-in that you download and install.

If your main interest is learning about Visual.NET, I believe this is technically possible. If you are interested in deploying an app that is backwards compatible with other browsers and older versions of Windows, forget it. You should learn about Java servlets and Java Server Pages. Then you can use a browser that understands html, so backward compatibility is not an issue. If you understand ASP you should be able to learn how to write JSPs easily.

In any case you need to move your code out of J++.  It will become obsolete quickly, because the developer base doesn't exist for Microsoft to devote resources to supporting or enhancing it.

OK, thanks.  I'll check into those things.
