Borland implies that it will provide interoperability bridge between Java and .NET, according to Lori Piquet, DevX Editor-in-Chief. This makes sense. Given this, you could likely see Borland incorporate interoperability to .NET within its products, especially the enterprise edition of JBuilder 5, currently in Beta. But how will they do this?



They will either initiate their own, perhaps open source, Java.NET project or join forces with Halcyon Software, which already has an open source Java.NET project. For more on this, go to our .NET DevCenter Open Source .NET Directory.



The latter scenario is more likely. Moreover, look for Borland to possibly acquire Halcyon Software.
