It's a cool project i should say, and it's useful to us AsWing teams,
i think i can use it to convert some jave source code to as, for
example some LayoutManagers in Java Swing would be just converted by
J2AS then they can work with AsWing. But i think this is just a little
one of J2AS's powers, i'll try to get more and let you know Ralf.
Thanx for the Cool Project.
