For some reason in build the following references in a .cs file compiled just fine:

using java.net;
using java.io;

But in or 2 I get the following compile error:

error CS0246: The type or namespace name 'java' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

What am I doing wrong here?

Actually please disregard my last comment. I'd forgotten to include the new dlls.

We have an IKVM application which is in large part pre-compiled using ikvmc and dynamically comiles only some Java jars. When this application is invoked from Visual Studio using a C# application, if we run the application without debugging then everything performs well and a reasonable amount of memory is required. But if we run the same application in debug mode from Visual Studio then the application takes a half hour to load up and requires a humongous amount of memory which at times causes the app to run out of memory.

Can you give us some guidance as to why this is happening and how we can optimize it?

Thanks in advance for you assistance and all the superb work you've done with IKVM.

I apologize for the lameness of this, but the comment spam was driving me nuts. In order to be able to post a comment, you need to answer a simple question. Hopefully this question is easy enough not to annoy serious commenters, but hard enough to keep the spammers away.

Anti-Spam Question: What method on java.lang.System returns an object's original hashcode (i.e. the one that would be returned by java.lang.Object.hashCode() if it wasn't overridden)? (case is significant)
