JNIWrapper 2.0 for Windows Released!

Finally, the JNIWrapper 2.0 is released!

Thank you all for your patience, ideas and comments you contributed during the Beta period.

The product is now available for download and purchase. If you haven't tried it yet, get a 30-day evaluation to unveil the power and the pleasure of writing in the Java language only!

We have made every effort to make JNIWrapper 2.0 as much usable and understandable for our users as possible. See the list of changes made since the Beta version in What's New section.

JNIWrapper packages now come with pre-made folders structure and you can use it as many other SDKs.

As usual, you can find all necessary documentation, including the updated User Guide and the new COM start-up Tutorial inside our Documentation section.

The JNIWrapper 1.4 is still available for download, evaluation and purchase.

During one month since JNIWrapper 2.0 release, we offer the JNIWrapper and the upgrade at a lower promotional price. The offer is valid until December 1, 2003.

Existing customers can upgrade to version 2.0 at a discounted upgrade price. 

What's Next?

Well, the JNIWrapper 2.0 is out. But we are not going to stop here. We have lots of ideas about new features and improvements. So, we decided to share some of our plans for the nearest JNIWrapper developments with you.

Here is a short list of priority tasks:

JNIWrapper 2.0 Release Date

Probably, this is not exactly the message you expected to see on the JNIWrapper News channel. But we have to admit that the release of JNIWrapper 2.0 is already quite late from what was originally planned.
We were almost ready to release the JNIWrapper 2.0 for Windows which mainly brings new COM/OLE/ActiveX integration functionality along with other minor enhancements. But having done another critical overview of what we were going to publish, we decided that it is not as good as we want it to be.
During the last two weeks we have received a great volume of feedback on COM integration functionality introduced in Beta version and we keep receiving new comments. We would like to thoroughly address your requests.
Our intention is to make a new version of JNIWrapper a real step forward. Therefore, this news is not about the new version release but about its delay.
What are the enhancements we are working on now:
  • Better JNIWrapper API documentation.
  • More COM Integration examples in WinPack Demo (Internet Explorer and Shockwave Flash).
  • Easier code generation.
  • All depricated API removal.
  • Customers feedback on Beta version processing.
All the changes listed above require another week of work.
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you all for your support and patience. Stay connected.
