QuestionMicrosoft Java :D Pin

..Around the same time, Sun Microsystems created Java. There are two aspects to the technology. From the language point of view, Java was designed to be a modern object-oriented language that did away with the complexities of C++ around memory management and bug-prone features like multiple inheritance, unhygienic macros, and so on. The other interpretation, Java as a platform, brought a runtime with a rich library to write enterprise applications that run on various platforms and target various application models both for the client and the Web.

A major downside to the Java strategy at the time was its tight coupling to a single language, making it hard to interoperate with existing code or to reuse existing programming skills in different languages while still targeting the same underlying runtime and libraries. So to make Java programming available on the Windows platform, a product called Visual J++ was created together with a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) implementation, a port of the libraries and bridges to the world of Windows in the form of the Windows Foundation Classes (WFC).



1. Anybody really had such a weird task/project at work that required you to code with VJ++? Smile | :)

2. And Windows Foundation classes? Is that MFC?

(For a moment I read it as WCF, I was clueless about the MJ++ bridge to the WCF. haha)
