Java I read in InfoQ: "Ja.NET is a port of Java 1.5 SE to the .NET platform. The compiler is based on the Eclipse JDT, which has been modified to generate IL as well as Java Byte Code. Java traditionally compiles each class into a separate file, but this creates an unacceptable overhead for .NET. To address this, a tool based on Cecil is used to create larger assemblies much in the same way Jar files are created for Java."

Shouldn't It Be The Other Way Around?

I'd rather .NET running under Java - while Java is available everywhere, .NET isn't, at least, not really.

It would be great to have the opposite wrapper allowing one to easily run .NET apps anywhere Java will run.
