Call Java from .NET

Take a few minutes and run through one of the included demo examples. They cover everything you need to do, and include all the necessary source code. Find them via the Start menu, under JNBridgePro.

The Log demo shows how to create a simple .NET console application that accesses a Java package (in this case, the Java log4j logging package). The Books demo shows how to connect .NET user interface code to a Java back end. It includes two projects: one to connect a Windows Forms-based GUI with the Java back and, and one to connect an ASP.NET-based Web application with the Java back end.

The Java-to-.NET “winFormDemo22” demo shows how to create a simple Java Swing-based application that causes Windows Forms to pop up when certain actions are taken. It also demonstrates how .NET methods can fire Java-based callback methods.

Did you know JNBridgePro can?

  • Run the .NET and Java sides in the same process, in different processes on the same machine, or on different machines on a network, anywhere?
  • Work in the cloud? Both sides can be in the cloud or one side can be in the cloud and the other side can be on the ground. If both are in the cloud, the two sides can be in the same cloud image, in different cloud images on the same platform, or on different cloud platforms.
  • Access Enterprise Java Beans from .NET code?
  • Communicate securely between the .NET and Java sides using SSL?
  • Support transactions that include both .NET and Java operations?
  • Run your .NET side code in .NET Framework, .NET Core,  or Mono, on Windows or Linux?
