Say Hello to 64-Bit J# and Goodbye to J#

Microsoft has plans to release a 64-bit version of the J# Redistributable this year. This is essentially a runtime needed to support J# applications. At the same time, they announced that J# will be discontinued and will not appear in the next version of Visual Studio.
 
J# is a .NET language based on Sun’s Java. It was originally released with the first version of Visual Studio.NET as a migration path for Java developers. It has never had much interest in the community for it, with most people having a strong preference for either staying with Java or using C#. Brad Wilson once wrote, "J# exists for old J++ users, NOT for modern Java users."

No... by nir tayeb

In my last company that i worked in, they want that I develop in .NET but because I know Java and not .NET they don't know in what language i will develop, so they decide that I use C# and not JScript.NET or J# because the lack of source code and articles in the internet.

Re: Ruby for .net by Jonathan Allen

There are some rumors that they will, but I don't expect to hear anything of substance until the next PDC.
