J# (J Sharp) is a discontinued programming language that was part of the Microsoft's .NET initiative. The J# language was designed to allow developers to migrate existing Java applications and applets to the .NET platform while providing integration with other .NET languages like Visual Basic and C#. It used syntax similar to Java, making it easier for developers familiar with Java to work within the .NET environment. J# has largely been replaced by interoperability solutions like IKVM.NET, which lets developers run legacy JVM-based code directly on the CLR (Common Language Runtime).
