J# Cross Platform RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know that Java applications can be run cross platform, but can J# applications built using Visual Studio be run cross platform?

    If know, how can I change this? Is there any software that can convert it?

    Thanks

    J# applications need the Visual J# Redist and .NET Redist to be available on a machine for execution. So, all platforms supported by .NET can be used for J# applications.

  • If you want to leverage Java-only classes within .Net, then use J#.  If not, then use a free Java compiler to compile the pure-Java-code that you typed-up in Visual Studio to another platform.

     

    J# allows one to seemlessly integrate Java classes into the .Net platform.  My point being that J# is cross-platform in a totally (and potentially more useful) way.  It allows one to "cross" between the Java-world and the .Net-world.

     

    You might also consider these projects if you really want to run .Net (including J#) elsewhere:
