Actually MicroStation/J is written with Visual C++ 5.0 (I think) not Java. But the Java 1.1.6 SDK is included. In other words any Java code will run under Microstation/J, Bentley extended the Java Virtual Machine (VM) in order to access the DGN files, with the use of the DGN Package. MS/J will not be affected by the recent Microsoft court decision. If you want further info go to the following address (http://www.bentley.com/products/mstation/j/index.htm) Hope that helps RT > -----Original Message----- > From: Bill Polhemus [mailto:polhemus(--nospam--at)insync.net] > Sent: Friday, November 20, 1998 4:16 PM > To: seaint(--nospam--at)seaint.org > Subject: CADD: Microstation/J: Why Isn't It Platform Independent? > > > Just got some literature about Bentley's upcoming new release, > Microstation/J. > > Now, my understanding was that this release was built on a > Java engine. > > So the question is, since Java was supposed to be a > platform-independent > language, why do they specifically state in their literature > that, for now, > they are only supporting Windows 95/98 and NT? > > Is this because they are using the Microsoft "flavor" of > Java?
