VB Converter:

An Overview




VB Converter seamlessly converts Visual Basic (VB) code into Java code which can leverage the resources of the web browser environment or the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on many different platforms. The automatically generated Java Applet can be embedded in an HTML page and can be deployed on commercial Web sites and corporate intranets. The same generated Java application can also be run as a stand-alone application on any platform or computer which supports Java. In this manual the word applet will be used to refer to both an applet running in a browser or a stand-alone application since all code generated from VB Converter can run either way depending on the context they are invoked from.

VB Converter also supports Java Database Connectivity (abbreviated JDBC) so you can easily create Java applets that can access data on Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, DB2, Sybase and other popular database servers. With VB Converter, you can use your VB programming skills to create Java applets with full data access capabilities that can be deployed on commercial Web sites and corporate intranets. 

NOTE: Refer to the VB Converter SupportedFeatures.html document for details on supported Visual Basic features. This information will assist you in converting your Visual Basic forms and projects to Java successfully.
