JNBridge LLC Wednesday announced the release of a new version of its Java-to-.Net interoperability tool for software developers.
Boulder, Colo.-based JNBridge announced JNBridgePro 1.3, which enables Java developers to write applications in their familiar environment and have that code run with .Net-based applications, the company said. The product supports the integration of .Net code and Java technologies such as Enterprise JavaBeans and Java Naming and Directory Interface, JNBridge officials said. The tool is aimed at developers building distributed enterprise applications.
New features in JNBridgePro 1.3 include transactions support via thread-true classes, pass by value, direct mapping between collection classes, support for strong naming, support for Microsoft Corp.s J# language, and performance improvements to the platform.
JNBridge officials said that although the new product supports interoperability between Java and .Net, it enables Java applications to remain standards compliant. JNBridgePro supports Java 2 Standard Edition (J2SE), Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) and J2EE application servers.
In another instance of J2EE portability, TheServerSide.com, a J2EE community site, announced that it has relaunched its site on Sun Microsystems Inc.s Sun ONE Application Server 7, which it now runs on along with Oracle Corp.s Oracle 9i Application Server Release 2 and BEA Systems Inc.s BEA WebLogic 7.
Officials at TheServerSide.com said the move demonstrates the portability of the J2EE platform in that all three J2EE application servers are running the same version of TheServerSide.com application “equally and compliantly,” said Floyd Marinescu, the sites director.
TheServerSide.com, based in Austin, is sponsored by the Middleware Company Inc., an Austin-based server-side Java training and consulting firm. Marinescu said TheServerSide.com has more than 275,000 members and gets more than three million page views per month. The site runs on a cluster that features Oracle 9iAS, BEA WebLogic 7 and the Sun ONE Application Server.
