FAQ for Java to C++ Converter

Q:    Are entire folders converted?

You can select Java folders to convert.  All ".java" files within that folder will be converted and written as either combined declaration/implementation header files or as traditionally separated .h/.cpp files to the directory you specify.  However, Java to C++ Converter does not construct the new C++ project file (e.g., the .vcxproj file in Visual Studio).  This is due to the lack of one-to-one correspondence between Java project types and formats and C++ project types and formats.

Q:    Is the original Java code altered in any way?

Your existing code is left completely intact.  The new C++ files are written to the new location that you specify.

Q:    Do you guarantee a 100% complete conversion?

No.  Our converter accuracy is the highest in the industry, but there will be some minor tweaks required in all but the most trivial conversions.  Read the rest of the FAQ to get an idea of a few things that are not converted. It is critical to try some of your own code when comparing Java to C++ converters since it is very easy to create a converter that does very well on a specific sample set.  The most important criterion is how well the converter does on your own code, and this is where Java to C++ Converter will clearly show its superiority.

Q:    How are anonymous inner classes handled?

Anonymous inner classes are converted to C++ nested private classes, but if the interface is a functional interface, then the interface is converted to a function pointer typedef and the anonymous inner class is converted to a lambda.

Q:    Are Java functional interfaces converted?

Yes - try out our Free Edition to see the conversion details.  We optionally convert Java functional interfaces to C++ function pointers.

Q:    What are the most common manual adjustments?
