what are the relations between Java, J++, C#?

Hi,
This question has hunted me for a while. I have thought J++ is closer to C#, while they are on the product lines of MS side by side. However, MS provides its own JVM, which seems work with Java, too (as in the browser). I did not study J++ API carefully, but should I treat J++ as a language completely different from Java, in the area of compatibility? Or something related and how related in the development?
Is J++ closer to Java or to C#?
Thanks for the help
Chris

J++ was MicroSoft's version of Java before Sun sued them. Basically java 1.1 with some extra Microsoft stuff mixed in. It is not platform independent. It is no longer supported.

C# is Microsoft's newest substitute language for java. It is sort of a combination of java and C++. It is strictly for Windows platform.

I've also heard rumors of J# (also from Microsoft), but don't know anything about it.
You can probably find out more about C# and J# on Microsoft's web site.

Microsoft has been using java in their browsers. However, it is limited to version 1.1.4 and lower. They wanted to use java and still make their version of java OS dependent which broke the Sun contract for use of java. Therefore the suit.
