JavaCallsCOM Sample (Upgrading Visual J++ 6.0 Java-Language/COM Components)
This sample demonstrates upgrading Visual J++ 6.0 Java-language/COM applications to Visual J#. The sample has three directories under the Clients subdirectory. The client in the SimpleClient directory shows upgrading of a simple client that accesses a COM DLL. Even the JActiveX® generated wrappers are upgraded. The InterfaceMarshaling and MessagePump samples explain specific workarounds to threading related issues that developers may face when upgrading their applications to Visual J#.
For detailed information on upgrading Visual J++ 6.0 Java-language/COM applications to Visual J# please refer to Upgrading Visual J++ 6.0 Applications That Access COM Components.
