Chapter 1 serves as an introduction to interoperability and points to individual chapters and what they cover. Chapters 2 through 4 are useful for IT professionals, developers, and students who wish to learn how J2EE technologies achieve application integration both internally and externally.
Chapters 5 through 7 introduce the reader to the .NET Framework and explain in detail how .NET technologies support multilanguage integration, one of the more significant advances in technology in recent years. This section is appropriate for those who are already familiar with J2EE, but want to concentrate on .NET technology.
In Chapter 8, J2EE and .NET come together in the cross-platform solution provided by JNBridge. This chapter should be of interest to IT professionals, developers, and students who want to begin working with both platforms. Chapter 9 focuses on best practices and offers a currency converter solution created in Visual Basic .NET to demonstrate how an application can be written in any language and on any platform.
