Hi... not sure if this should be in the Delphi topic or the Java topic but....

I was just wondering if there was some quick/easy way to translate a program written in Java to Delphi.

Also, just one other quick related question - does a program written in Delphi run faster than the same program in Java?

nope, depends on the app, but i guess new recoding in delphi is faster than any converting

>does a program written in Delphi run faster than the same program in Java?
i would say yes (if not .NET in use), because delphi win32 compiled code is native machine-code,
and must not go through the VM of java

I agree with kretzschmar. There is this awesome product from J4Soft though, called JX. http://www.j4soft.com/
This library makes your delphi app 'java enabled'. With this you can use any library and do any java function call from your delphi app.
Really a wondrous piece of software :)
