Microsoft Java LifeCycle Alert
While casually browsing at Eric Nelson's weblog, I learnt that still there a lot of organizations who keep clinging on to Microsoft Java Virtual Machine based solution. Nelson has mentioned about meeting one ISV (Independant Software Vendor) who heavily uses Microsoft VM for their solutions.
Just thought I would also mention about the same for the benefit of other developer fraternity. If you read Microsoft Java Virtual Machine Support webpage here, you can observe the following important dates that we need to remember:
- MSJVM reaches End of Life on December 31, 2007
Microsoft has also presented a lucid compilation of Transition to alternate technologies like the following:
- Migration to a more powerful .NET Enterprise platform
- Third Party Java Vendors.
