    Java to C++ - Automatic Migration

    Having done a bit more research today in conjunction with some colleagues we've discovered java2cpp from Programics (http://www.programics.com/java2cpp.php). I've been playing around with it for a few hours and it looks like it should fit the bill very well. It translates Java to pretty readable C++ and, on the simple examples I've thrown at it, performs very well. Still plenty of work to do on this project but at least I have a jumping off point and several thousand less lines of unfinished Java code to worry about. Cheers, RM

    http://www.datascope.co.uk/gateway.html is a good resource although sometimes a little out of date.

    Java to C++ - Automatic Migration

    Thanks everyone for your replies, it sounds like this is going to have to be done the hard way =( It seems surprising that noone's tried to do this yet. There are some issues but nothing that seems completely insurmountable. This probably means that I haven't thought about it enough. AP> Thanks for the links, shame that the project is still under development. The reasons for porting are commercial and we also need to have readable C++ source code otherwise a Java->Native compiler would have been a great way to go. Oh well. Thanks again, ResearchMonkey
  4. I'm about to begin a project porting a Java (actually J2ME) project to C++. Does anyone know anything about tools to automatically migrate the code between the two languages? Obviously no tool is going to be able to do all of the work but it would certainly help get things going. Also, the original project is still under development and so having a tool would be a good way of tracking a moving codebase. I'd always assumed that tools to do this existed in some form but a couple of hours spent searching the web hasn't produced anything useful. Is this a good tree to be barking up? Thanks for any advice, ResearchMonkey

    Finding Developers by Location (UK)

    Thanks a lot for the links, I'll start taking a look. The Chaos Engine sounds interesting (great game too), if you did have time to find the names of a few London/SE based developers that would be absolutely brilliant but thanks for your help already.
  6. I'm currently in the process of applying for what will hopefully be my first programming position within the industry. I've spent a lot of time looking at developers' websites in search of vacancies but this is very time consuming and quite hit and miss in terms of finding developers in my part of the country (London and the south-east). Does anyone know of any resource that lists developers by region or has anyone else found useful ways of dealing with this problem in the past? Many thanks in advance for anyone who can help, RM

    Stumped on exam question

    2. is almost a trick question, the 'x' column is actually the same as the bottom row, so x is 40. 3. is a little harder but the previous questions help. You already know K (7) and Q (9). From the bottom row you know that L+Z=24. Put this into the top row and you then know Z=13. There's probably more than one way of doing 3), possibly simpler. If it helps, try and think of these questions as being analogous to simultaneous equations, it's not vital though. More importantly, remember that examiner's generally want to help you answer the question. Look for repeated letters, similar rows/columns etc. Good luck with your exam =)
