Hi,

I just heard something very interesting from a colleague. That by using Visual J++ you can have access to gdc or even directx (as a hack). Is this true?

Yes, it supports DirectX via M$'s JDirect stuff. Now, go shoot him for suggesting that people use non-compatible VM and IDE that have been discontinued by their manufacturer.

Actually, considering how saturated the java developer market is getting, tell him and all your friends to start using J++.  Grin


Or just break their computers.

"Suggesting"? Hey, no one suggested nothing buddy, I just wanted to confirm a simple fact here.

Not everyone's in holy war you know...

Anyway, thanks for your reply and take it easy.

Sorry, supposed to be some deadpan humor. Seriously tho, J++ and MSVM are both dead products. All using them will accomplish is pain and anguish while you receive derision from other Java programmers. If you *really* want to tie yourself to windows by using DirectX, just write JNI bindings. It's no more difficult than the C++ wrappers people have written.
