I am developing with MS J++, and it is obvious that the Java 2 Swing stuff isn't supported as Java 2 Swing in the MS version of Java. I can't find any documentation that explains the parallels between pure Java and what Microsoft supports. Can someone explain or point me to a resource that explains the similarities between the two? Also, considering this problem, does anyone know of an IDE that is as user friendly and intuitive as J++, but has full support for Java 2? I have tried a couple (CodeWarrior and JBuilder), and they fall short of J++.

You can easily add Swing support to J++, BUT you can't use it in a visual way. If you want J++, you're stuck creating MS-specific programs, if you use the tool visually.
Personally, I like JBuilder. Now in release 5!

I personally prefer JBuilder4 (I'm a little surprise that you didn't like it, anyway I guess whatever suits your needs). You can however try Forte or NetBeans which has full support for Java 2 (JFC Swing in particular). They are available as a free download from SUN.

Microsoft gave up its support for Java due to the law suit. I would not recommend relying on their IDE for Java. Their products for VB and VC++ are great but for java you are better off using Visual Age, JBuilder, Visual Cafe or even Visual Slick Edit.

It seems to me that J++ became C#.

Well, as far as I know C# is a Microsoft version of a platform independent (MS claims) Java like language. I have not worked with it and cannot say if it so or not.
Anyway using Microsoft IDE for Java development is not a good practice.

John,
I found your post through a Google search. Could you direct me to information about how to add swing support to J++ ?
Thanks.
