Microsoft dropping J# and JLCA in next version of Visual Studio

Via Lorenzo Barbieri (via Google blog search, I don't read Italian) I learned that Microsoft decided to drop support for J# and the Java Language Conversion Assistant in the next version of Visual Studio (code named Orcas).

I'm glad they finally realised the futility of competing with IKVM.NET ;-)

If you want the news in English, it's also on the MS Visual J# page :)

I wonder what MySpace is going to do? They use BlueHorrnet which is a copycat of cold fusion that runs on top of J2EE or .NET but the .NET port is written in J#.

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)
