Java and .NET are like twins separated at birth, but what if you actually want to run your Java code on .NET? IKVM.NET aims to provide a full Java platform on top of the .NET Framework and in this talk we'll look at how this is accomplished and what the challenges are.
This, http://www.ikvm.net/, is one of those stealth projects that's been around for a while (my first post on it was in 2005, Java Implementation for Mono/.Net (IVKM.Net)), is used in a number of of other products and projects yet is one you don't hear much in and of itself. If you've ever had java envy or found a jar that you wish was available for use in your .Net app, then you should check out IKVM.Net.
