JNBridgePro 2.1, the latest release of the Java/.NET interoperability
tool for software developers by JNBridge LLC, provides an in-process
shared-memory communications channel that greatly speeds the
interaction between JavaTM technology and .NET when
bridging applications that run on the same machine.
The tool enables software developers to pass or access any object and
access any instance or static member across the platform boundary.
JNBridgePro enables .NET to communicate with JavaTM 2 Platform,
Standard Edition (J2SETM platform) or JavaTM 2 Platform, Enterprise
Edition (J2EETM platform), including J2EE facilities such as
Enterprise JavaBeansTM (EJBTM) specification, JavaTM Message
Service (JMS) API and Java Naming and Directory InterfaceTM
(JNDI) API, and supports all the leading J2EE application servers.
The shared-memory communications channel in version 2.1 allows both the
Java and .NET sides to run in the same process, which results in a
significant performance improvement, as the overheads associated with
socket-based communications and inter-process switching costs are
eliminated. Shared-memory starts and stops both the .NET and Java sides
automatically, so they no longer have to be explicitly managed, making
applications easier to develop and deploy. JNBridgePro 2.1 supports a
variety of architectures that span in-process, cross-process, intranet
or internet communications with just configuration changes, and without
having to change the underlying code.
Version 2.1 also eliminates the need for a special JNBridgePro
configuration file -- configuration can be controlled through the
application's configuration file or the API -- and has optimized the
passing of very large arrays.
Beta testers have reported substantial increases in performance. "I
don't know how I lived without the shared memory feature before," said
Andrew Sharpe, software architect at Whitehill Technologies, Inc., a
leading provider of Document Composition and Format Transformation
software. "JNBridge helps us to develop cutting-edge, world-class
solutions, and beat our competition to market."
