Lower Integration Maintenance Costs with Javonet!


With Javonet there is no need to rewrite .NET or Java code or to implement custom unified interfaces like Web Services, COM or Native Wrappers. As it was compared in our previous post Javonet requires the least effort among the alternatives that can be implemented to integrate Java and .NET. In fact the only development done is focused on the target application. No additional artifacts are required for Javonet to perform the native integration between Java and .NET. The external libraries that come from the other technology will not require any modifications and they can be used just as they are.

Therefore the maintenance of the ready solution that derives from both technologies costs much less. The single code base (just the target application code) means a lot fewer places for the bugs to appear. Your development and support team will not be subjected to the malfunctioning of any middle layer infrastructure or web service’s performance or configuration trobules. There is no service outage threat coming from custom client-server infrastructure or configuration issues with COM/Native Wrappers which complexity may lead to different kinds of incidents.

Following this path no IIS or client-server monitoring is required in the maintenance efforts as no client – server data exchange is present in Javonet integration scenario. Our native integration technology will not require any configuration activities neither. Javonet is a single file solution (either .jar or .dll) and it can be used out of the box within minutes and after few lines of quick start guide lecture. Native integrations based on Javonet are encapsulated within single OS process guaranteeing highest performance and reliability therefore it fits perfectly in each scenario where tight integration of components from different technologies is required.

Looking at the above mentioned benefits it becomes obvious that Javonet reduces the number of deployment artifacts to be monitored and maintained. That leads to the lower cost of any possible changes that may be needed. This results as well in the fewer end-user support requests that need to be processed and reduces the scope to the target application issues only. Finally as mentioned in previous post the skill set that will be needed to integrate Java and .NET in your project will be narrowed to just Java or just .NET developers and no other knowledge will be needed (i.e. C++, IIS, web services or COM).

Considering projects where web or desktop application requires to access external data layer components, algorithms, physical devices drivers or UI components from different programming languages, Javonet delivers tight, closed and most stable integration that gives the feeling of using single technology.
