No doubt that you're not only wasting your time by using Visual J++, but also build sytems that will not be compatible with any other platform other than Microsoft's.
Moreover, if you want to work with latest Java API [including EJB], then VJ++ is not suitable, as Microsoft doesn't have license for any JDK 1.2.x or later.
They're just stuck with JDK 1.1.x, as they had to settle $20 billion to Sun [additional revenue to Sun!], for violating the
license agreement with Sun, for using JAVA . If you need to work with EJB and the REAL JAVA technologies, you've array of
good JAVA IDEs that can be considered: Oracle JDeveloper 9i, Borland JBuilder, IBM Visual Age For Java, Sun Forte For Java, etc.
Never ever think of VJ++ or any other microsoft tools [other than Windows], when it comes to JAVA. They've proved that they're the culprit!
