For those of you who are stuck trying to convert Java based
solutions to .NET... I've got big news for you.
I got the following note from my contact at Microsoft:
I thought you would be interested in today’s news. Microsoft announced
the release of the Java
Language Conversion Assistant 2.0 (JLCA). With this release of the
tool Java server pages (JSP) and servlets are automatically converted
to ASP.NET. Microsoft is committed to providing Java language
developers an effective, low cost method of migrating their
projects to run on the .NET Framework. This guide contains
a walk-through of a real-world JSP to ASP.NET migration.
According to Gartner, over 80% of J2EE development is JSP and
servlets. It is essential to provide developers with a tool to
convert JSP to ASP.NET to experience the power of the Windows
platform. Microsoft is providing a migration guide posted on
MSDN as a resource to developers. This guide contains a
step-by-step guide of a real-world JSP to ASP.NET migration project.
