Is Microsoft J++ extinct ?

It's been a long time since I used J++, because of Eclipse, I stuck with J++ until it was embarrassing not to be using Eclipse.
- I can't find an article to comment on J++ extinction?
Is it still being used?
I also saw a sentence somewhere that C++ is going to Eclipse? !

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This article says that Microsoft discontinued support for J++ in 2004.
Microsofts java imitation grew into J# after. Why dont you run eclipse on normal JRE/JDK like it is intended to work?

I know it's prehistoric, but I'm curious as to it's total oblivion.
There were legal wrangles over Java's implementation on MS platforms iirc. As gheist said, it's gone - into the digital dustbin, so forget it.
