IKVM.NET is an effective for several distinct software development situations. Here is a sampling of some of the possibilities.
- Drop-in JVM
- Create.NET applications in Java
- Use Java libraries in your .NET applications
The ikvm program included with the distribution is a .NET implementation of a Java Virtual Machine. In many situations, you can use it as a drop-in substitute for java. For example, instead of writing
java -jar myapp.jar
to start an application, you can write
ikvm -jar myapp.jar
Use Java libraries in your .NET programs
IKVM.NET contains ikvmc, a Java bytecode to .NET IL translator. If you have a Java library that you would like to use in a .NET program, run ikvmc -target:library mylib.jar to make mylib.dll.
For example, the Apache FOP is an open-source XSL FO processor developed in Java that is commonly used to create PDF files from XML source. With the technology offered by IKVM.NET , Apache FOP can be used with any .NET program you desire.
Create.NET software in Java
IKVM offers a way for you to create .NET programs in Java. Although IKVM.NET does not contains a Java compiler for .NET, you can use any Java compiler to compile Java source code to JVM bytecode, then use ikvmc -target:exe myapp.jar to produce a .NET executable. You can even use .NET API's in your Java code using the included ikvmstub application.
