VB Converter is a Visual Basic add-in that automatically converts entire Visual Basic applications to 100% Pure Java. VB Converter eliminates the need to rewrite Visual Basic applications in Java in order to web-enable them or to deploy them on any platform which supports Java. The Java code produced by VB Converter maintains the visual and functional integrity of the original VB project, thus enhancing the developer's understanding about constructing Java applications, and jump starting the move to Java.


* Generates Java source (entirely all Java, no native code used) and byte code from Visual Basic projects (modules, classes, controls, and forms).

* Converts entire Visual Basic (3.0, 4.0, 5.0 & 6.0) applications to Java. Runs as an add-in to VB 5 & 6. Also runs as a command-line tool for VB 3 through 6.

* Converted code can run as either a Java applet or as a stand-alone Java application depending on how the application was started up.

* Converts ActiveX controls written within Visual Basic to Java code.

* Supports over 70 Visual Basic controls and objects including Data, Adodc, Menu, Windows Common Controls (ProgressBar, ImageList, ListView, TreeView, etc.), FlexGrid, Grid, DBGrid, DataGrid, DBList, DBCombo, SSTab, and the ThreeD controls.

* Converts the picture resources stored in the binary frx file to jpeg images.

* Allows debugging of Java applications within Visual Basic or any Java IDE (Borland JBuilder, Symantec VisualCafe, Oracle JDeveloper, and others).

* Migrates DAO, RDO or ADO database access into Java database access using JDBC and a Java implementation of the ADO objects.

* Supports Data Bound controls. Now you can quickly develop Java database applications.

* Adds Java database support (JDBC), facilitating the creation of Java applets that can access data on Oracle, DB2, SQL Server, MySQL, Sybase, Informix and other databases.

* Supports all Visual Basic data types, including Variant, Enum, Object and Collection.

* Supports creating VB interfaces using the Implements keyword.

* Automatic type casting and conversion to the native Java data types.

* Supports local file I/O.

* You have a choice of generating Java 1.1 applications using AWT (thin client) or Java 2 applications using swing based controls.

* Customizable conversion rules. If you want to add the ability to convert new controls or functions or want to change how the conversion is done, you simply change a few simple conversion rules.

* Runtime Java classes may be distributed royalty free once you purchase the product.
