Is Microsoft J++ extinct ?

Hi
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? !

Why are Microsoft's Two marquee programming studios dissolving?
Thanks

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.

This article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visual_J%2B%2B 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.

You can choose noncompliant MS Java 1.0 aka MSJVM, thats even older and has more weight per byte
