Subject [general] Ja.NET SE OSS Project
Date Tue, 02 Dec 2008 18:35:04 GMT
Hi All,
I just wanted to take a minute and bring your attention to an OSS project, 
based on Harmony, I recently started .... Ja.NET (www.janetdev.org).

I am building a Java 5 JDK for .NET (i.e. Ja.NET SE), and I am using 
Harmony, along with other open source software (e.g. Eclipse compiler, 
Mono, etc.) as the basis for the work.  The goal of the project is to 
create the development tools and libraries that will enable Java to become 
a "first class" development and runtime environment for .NET. The Ja.NET SE 
JDK project is the first thing I have kicked off.  The hope is, at some 
point in the "very near future", :-), the Ja.NET SE JDK will give 
developers all the Java development tools they need to develop software in 
Java for the .NET platform.  For example, the Java development tools would 
enable someone to take existing Java source code (e.g. Ant, Xerces, 
Eclipse, etc.) and easily build it, enhance it with new .NET specific 
features, integrate it with other .NET code and libraries (e.g. C#, VB.NET, 
WPF, etc.), and then ultimately use/run it on .NET.  

I'm making pretty good progress THANKS TO YOU and the great work you have 
done in building Harmony. Without your effort, I'd be a long way from where 
I am today!  So here is a big THANK YOU for all your hard work and 
dedication to open source Java.   

I look forward to working with you where/when it makes sense, and hope that 
I can contribute in some small way to the success of Harmony in the 

Best regards,
