Java Language Conversion Assistant Wizard 

Use the Java Language Conversion Assistant wizard to convert Visual J++ and Java-language projects to Visual C#. With the wizard, you can create a new project and copy files from your original project for conversion from Visual J++ or the Java language to Visual C#. A report detailing any errors, warnings, or issues encountered in the conversion process is generated. Errors, warnings, and issues are also noted as comments in the code of the new project and can be viewed on the task list.


The dialog boxes and menu commands you see might differ from those described in Help depending on your active settings or edition. To change your settings, choose Import and Export Settings on the Tools menu. For more information, see Visual Studio Settings.

To access the Java Language Conversion Assistant wizard

  1. On the File menu, point to Open, and click Convert.

  2. Click Java Language Conversion Assistant, and click OK.

    Security Note   You should review any C# code converted from Java using the Java Language Conversion Assistant tool for security issues. Any insecure Java code is converted into insecure C# code. In addition, the tool does not migrate code for certain Java classes, including some related to security, for example, authentication. In these cases, the upgrade report notes what code has not been migrated. It is important to review the report and to provide mitigation for any security issues.
