SAN FRANCISCO (08/25/2000) - Codemesh Inc. has announced the beta release of its JunC++ion technology, which integrates Java and C++. The tool allows C++ programs to use Java classes as though they were C++ classes, which helps programmers integrate C++ clients and servers into Java. Using JunC++ion, users do not have to port, use CORBA or ORBs, or code JNI. Programs can use Java standards, such as JDBC and Java servlets, and can integrate into an EJB environment.
Using JunC++ion, components written in different languages can run together, so users can write in whatever language is ideal for the situation. In addition, C++ applications can port incrementally to Java, and Java libraries are available to C++ applications without porting.
JunC++ion runs in both Java 1 and Java 2 with all major Java VMs, including those from Sun Microsystems Inc., IBM Corp., and Microsoft Corp. The beta release is available immediately from Codemesh. http://www.codemesh.com/en/index.html
