Is there anyway to integrate Java into Visual Studion .NET 2003? Or is there a useful IDE out there for Java? So far, I've been using NetBeans 4.1, and I haven't been impressed. Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Hi Tyler5690,
Unfortunately you can't integrate Java with Visual Studio.NET; because M$ has its own modification of Java called J#, which is included in VS.NET, but J# apps run on the .NET Framework and not on JVM. Also, M$ license with Sun for Java is also expiring(in another year) so J# will be discontinued and even Microsoft Virtual Machine(M$'s version of JVM) will be discontinued. Also M$ wants .NET to replace Java. So I don't think they want people to write Java in one of their masterpieces.

The Beta version of NetBeans 5.0 has alot of improvements try it out.
Also try out JCreator, download the LE version, which is free.

i thik there is a missleading about J#, nothing is discountinued, and j# nothing to do with java and what license.. i knew there is a no license thing thats wyh sun is so mad about this stuation,

under this link
NOTE " Applications and services built with Visual J# .NET will run only in the Microsoft .NET Framework. Visual J# .NET has been independently developed by Microsoft. It is not endorsed or approved by Sun Microsystems, Inc "

by the time i went to the microsoft seminar and i got standart edition vs.net , sql server and biztalk server 2006 ... and i installed them except biztalk server because its not release yet, and there is still J# included with visual studio .net, sooo

anyway .....
what is my experience with visual studio .net and sql server 2005 so far they are great, exept some bugs :tazz:
nothing is perfect. asp.net 2.0 is great web development env. too...
sql server 2005 throws enterprice mannager to garbage, so now both mannager are together in same mannager, it makes your work easier, and there are more features in sql 2005 so just try it and see the difference...
