A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
Currently there exists many ports of .NET to many platforms (Windows, Linux, etc). Dotnet is working also with different processors (Intel x86, Intel Itanium, etc)

Java is running also on many platforms and processors.

But if we want call from Java a dotnet component then we need a native wrapper. Whatever we use, JNI or the ActiveX Bridge. It is only run on one platform.

JUSTIFICATION :
  To make such components more platform independent we need a Java-Dotnet-Bridge.

It can work like the classic JNI. The call to System.loadLibrary() is loading the dotnet library. The mapping of the name space is very simple. The namespace need to be identical in Java and in Dotnet.
