Java libraries in .NET application – research
I have a problem to solve. How can I work with Java libraries and graphic frameworks (WPF, Windows Forms) from .NET in a single application ? I found solving on page IKVM.NET.
IKVM.NET – what is it ?
- .NET implementation of a Java Virtual Machine
- A .NET implementation of the Java class libraries
- Tools that enable Java and .NET interoperability
The most interesting part of IKVM.NET for me are tools that enable Java and .NET interoperability. For example, ikvmc is a translator from Java bytecode to .NET IL. If you have a Java library that you would like to use in a .NET application, run ikvmc -target:library mylib.jar to create mylib.dll.
The thing I want to use in my project, is programmatically called operation to convert a jar library file to a dll library.
