Hi guys, i know this question might sound awkward but it's because I need an answer. Can I run a java application on a .NET framework. Thanks in advance.

My first instinct would have been "no", they're fundamentally different platforms. But a quick search (did you try that?) came up with this: http://www.ikvm.net/

Having said that, it's not a route I'd take if I could avoid it.

Java and .Net use different opcodes for compiled classes, so no. Though there are numerous projects that have ways of getting the two to interact.

There used to be something called J# which was identical to Java™ but ran on a .NET platform. It was withdrawn as a breach of copyright.
