JNBridge Pro 4.1
Wayne Citrin: Hi, I'm Wayne Citrin from JNBridge. We do Java and .NET
interoperability, and we have a range of tools that actually support a

What's new in our offering this year is the ability to take
Java, AWT, Swing Arista components and drop
them into a WPF, Windows Presentation Foundation application, or

other than the ones who are just using the platform on which the
initial component was developed.
Wayne Citrin: Sure.
