Categories: Interoperability, Miscellaneous

Author: Smardec

J2Native is the software development kit for working with native code from any Java application without using Java Native Interface (JNI) technology. While using J2Native you do not have to create native code libraries or deal with native code at all. You can call functions from any dynamic library or use system API without necessity to waste time on studying JNI.

Author: IBM

Latest version: 4.8
Added 2005-06-30

Open Source version of the IBM Toolbox for Java.
The IBM Toolbox for Java is a library of Java classes supporting the client/server and internet programming models to an iSeries or AS/400 server. The classes can be used by Java applets, servlets, and applications to easily access iSeries and AS/400 data and resources.
The Toolbox does not require additional client support over and above what is provided by the Java Virtual Machine and TCP/IP.
It has been tested on a variety of platforms, including AIX, i5/OS and OS/400, Linux, OS/2, Solaris, and Windows.

Categories: Interoperability

Author: Codemesh

Latest version: 3.2.18
Added 2007-09-18

Development tool that solves Java/C++ or Java/C integration problems.

JunC++ion consists of the following components:
- a code generator, both GUI and command line version: takes Java bytecode as input and generates platform- and compiler-portable C++ source files, makefiles, and project files.
- a runtime library: typically platform- and compiler-specific and provides an abstraction layer around the generic aspects of Java and C++ integration.
- an ANT abstraction for various C++ compilers.
- a Shared JVM server: provides you with an alternate deployment option that does not require the presence of a Java Runtime Environment on the host that is running your C++ code.

Excelsior JET

 Home Page Home Page

Categories: Compilation - Bytecode manipulation, Interoperability

Author: Excelsior

Latest version: 5.0
Added 2005-02-06Updated 2007-09-17

Java Virtual Machine enhanced with Ahead-Of-Time (AOT) compilation.

The AOT compiler transforms classes and jars into binary executables that run directly on hardware for Windows and Linux on the Intel x86 platform. These executables work faster than the original class files executed within a conventional JVM. In addition, your applications become more secure against tampering and code theft.
VM components responsible for Java memory management, threading, synchronization, security, etc., are placed into a DLL that you redistribute along with the precompiled executables. Among those runtime components is a JIT compiler that takes care of classes that could not be precompiled, thus enabling Excelsior JET to support the entire Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition 5.0 API, including dynamic class loading.
Your applications can use JNI and Invocation API to interoperate with C, C++ and Delphi, or use COM to interoperate with C++, VB6, VBA (and probably any other language that supports the COM interface).

Latest version: 2.2
Added 2003-05-20Updated 2004-12-10

Java/.NET interoperability tool that enables two-way interoperability between Java and .NET.
With JNBridgePro, Java can access .NET objects and classes, and .NET can access Java classes and objects.
JNBridgePro creates the interoperability bridge by generating a set of proxies that expose the classes' APIs and manages the communications between the .NET and Java classes. You can explore Java or .NET classes with the proxy generator GUI and determine which classes should have their functionality exposed. JNBridgePro automatically generates the proxies, and will optionally find and expose all the necessary supporting classes.

Interface Tool for Java

 Home Page Home Page

Categories: Interoperability

Author: IBM

Allows Java programs to communicate with ActiveX objects.

Interface Tool for Java allows integration of ActiveX objects into a Java Environment. Using the Java Native Interface (JNI) and COM technology, Interface Tool for Java allows an ActiveX object to be treated just like a Java object.
Using Interface Tool for Java requires simply running a proxy generating tool that creates Java proxies from the ActiveX controls's typelib. These proxies can then be used to allow a Java program to communicate with the ActiveX object.

Tool that takes compiled Java classes as input and generates in-process C# bindings for them.
Under the hood, the JuggerNET runtime uses P/Invoke and JNI to execute the original Java in the CLR process.

Among other things, JuggerNET can be used to:
- publish .NET versions of Java APIs
- publish COM bindings for Java APIs
- integrate .NET clients into JMS or EJB applications
JuggerNet consists of:
- a code generator, GUI and command line: it takes Java bytecode as input and generates platform- and compiler-portable C# source files, batch build files, and project files.
- a runtime library: comes in two flavors, strongly named and not strongly named, and provides an abstraction layer around the generic aspects of Java and .NET integration. The runtime library represents our expert knowledge of the runtime aspects of Java/.NET interoperability.
- a Shared JVM server: provides you with an alternate deployment option that does not require the presence of a Java Runtime Environment on the host that is running your .NET code.

Jawin

 Home Page Home Page

Categories: Interoperability

Latest version: 2.0 Alpha 1
Added 2005-04-19

The Java/Win32 integration project (Jawin) is a free, open source architecture for interoperation between Java and components exposed through Microsoft's Component Object Model (COM) or through Win32 Dynamic Link Libraries (DLLs).

You can use Jawin to interact with scriptable applications such as the Microsoft Office suite. You can use Jawin to call scriptable logic components such as Microsoft's COM-based XML parsers and tools. You can also use Jawin to access Win32 API features such as the Windows registry, security APIs, and the event log. You can also use Jawin to make in-process interoperability with .NET code exposed as COM objects. In fact, Jawin allows your Java applications to call any legacy COM- and DLL-based code, without having to write any Java Native Interface (JNI) code. Using Jawin, you can call any component that can be scripted in the Windows environment. You can also call arbitrary COM components or DLL entry points.

Jawin includes a code generator, Jawin Type Browser, supporting generation of stub code for scriptable as well as non-scriptable COM components. The code generator reads one or more type libraries, and automatically emits the Java stubs needed to call the component(s). The Jawin Type Browser is not (yet) able to generate code for DLL entry points, and not all parameter types are supported for COM components.

SWIG

 Home Page Home Page

Categories: Interoperability

Latest version: 1.3.33
Added 2005-02-10

Development tool that connects programs written in C and C++ with a variety of high-level programming languages.
SWIG (Simplified Wrapper and Interface Generator) is used with different types of languages including common scripting languages such as Perl, Python, Tcl/Tk and Ruby. The list of supported languages also includes non-scripting languages such as C#, Common Lisp (Allegro CL), Java, Modula-3 and OCAML. Also several interpreted and compiled Scheme implementations (Chicken, Guile, MzScheme) are supported. SWIG is most commonly used to create high-level interpreted or compiled programming environments, user interfaces, and as a tool for testing and prototyping C/C++ software. SWIG can also export its parse tree in the form of XML and Lisp s-expressions.

The C# module offers an automated way of accessing existing C/C++ code from .NET languages. The wrapper code implementation uses the Platform Invoke (PInvoke) interface to access natively compiled C/C++ code. Swig C# works equally well on non-Microsoft operating systems such as Linux, Solaris and Apple Mac using Mono and Portable.NET.
The Java extension to SWIG offers a way of accessing existing C/C++ code from Java. SWIG writes the Java Native Interface (JNI) code for you. It is different to using the 'javah' tool as SWIG will wrap existing C/C++ code, whereas javah takes 'native' Java function declarations and creates C/C++ function prototypes. SWIG wraps C/C++ code using Java proxy classes and is useful if you want to have access to large amounts of C/C++ code from Java.
