"Microsoft Visual J++ is an integrated Windows-hosted development tool for
Java programming. Visual J++ allows you to create, modify, build, run,
debug, and package an application, all within a single environment.

"Visual J++ 6.0 introduces the Windows Foundation Classes for Java (WFC).
This new application framework accesses the Microsoft Windows API, enabling
you to write full-featured Windows applications with the Java programming
language. WFC also wraps the Dynamic HTML object model implemented in
Internet Explorer 4.0, which allows you to dynamically manipulate HTML on
both the client and the server."
