.NET and J2EE Interop resources

.NET and J2EE Interop resources


I had a great time presenting this topic at several User Groups over the past couple weeks. In particular, it was awesome to have the Vancouver Java Users Group (VanJUG) come out. Thanks for coming guys, hope you enjoyed the session!!


As promised, here’s some resources I mentioned I’d gather together.

Application Interoperability : Microsoft .NET and J2EE

This was that blue book I was holding up during the User Group presentation that was created by the Patterns and Practices team. I would highly recommend you check this out as they’ve done an excellent job on this guide. You can read the chapters online, download it in PDF format, or purchase it from your favorite online book shop. Here’s the sample app you can download as well

Simon Guest is our interoperability dude and he’s done an incredible amount of work in this are and produced some fantastic resources in the form of his book, webcasts on interop, whitepapers, blogging, and even a cool WSE trace tool.

Why not have Simon explain the above tips to you by watching his MSDNTV episode where he whiteboards this all out. Highly recommended!

    Hi Ryan —

    Since you’ve mentioned some of our competitors, maybe you could mention our URL, too:

    JNBridge: http://www.jnbridge.com

    There was a link to JNBridge in the post, however; I noticed I made a typo as I didn’t have the url to codemesh and was missing the JNBridge title above the link. I’ve corrected the post.
