As far as I know, Microsoft once had a language called J#, which was a .NET variant of Java. I think they dropped it.
The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
Microsoft� Visual J# can be used by developers who are familiar with the Java-language syntax to build applications and services on the .NET Framework. It integrates the Java-language syntax into the Visual Studio� .NET integrated development environment (IDE). Visual J# also supports most of the functionality found in Visual J++ 6.0�, including Microsoft extensions. Visual J# is not a tool for developing applications intended to run on a Java Virtual Machine. Applications and services built with Visual J# will run only on the .NET Framework. Visual J# has been independently developed by Microsoft. It is not endorsed or approved by Sun Microsystems, Inc.
