    I noticed that you listed support for .Net "v3.0 and v3.5 (Beta)." I was under the impression that J# will not ship with Orcas or any future version of VS. Needless to say that VS2005 ships with version 2.0. Is this support only because these newer versions are generally backward compatible with 2.0?

  2. GauravS says:

    No – Visual J# would not be a part of the Visual Studio codenamed Orcas. This releases is only a redistributable (runtime components) release, which is compatible with .NET Framework 3.5 (which would be shipped with Orcas). There would be no IDE (or design time)support for this release while using Visual Studio codenamed Orcas.

    May I ask how will Orcas’s debugger work when stepping into a managed DLL coming from J# source code (built in debug mode) ?


  4. GauravS says:

    Visual Studio Orcas does not recogonize the Visual J# files/projects. The best way to debug the J# apps would be using the Visual Studio 2005 debugger.

  5. Jan says:

    That is not true, J# project are not supported from Orcas, you need 2005 to build assemblies. Or you have to write the project files by yourself. If you just link against existing assemblies with pdb files and sources you can use the Orcas debugger also.

  6. Jerry says:

    This is sad, no J# 2008. Well i think ill forget about VS and return to Netbeens or J Creator.
