Its one of the bullet points i have under a job experience here is how it reads



"Aided the transition of existing C++ code to run in a Java environment"


i dont think its reads right. basically we wanted to expand our java footprint so we saw how things were made in c++ and did our best to have makeas much of the project in java. what is a better way to write this thanks?

Hello mate,

I think the way your question is written can give an impression that you just "translated" C++ code to Java, and I think what you mean is that you transitioned legacy C++ applications to Java, not only the language itself, but the features that the Java Platform offer.

How about writing like this?

"Aided the transition of existing C++ legacy applications to the Java Platform"

Cheers

Aided softens your action a bit. You need to show some pride in your contributions.


-- transitioned existing C++ legacy applications to the Java Platform ....

-- Contributed immensely to transition existing C++ legacy applications to the Java Platform .....

-- Successfully transitioned existing C++ legacy applications to the Java Platform .....
