Subject Re: JUniversal for Automated Java -> C# translation?
Date Fri, 06 Feb 2015 08:20:44 GMT
Troy, we already are using mainly 2 tools - Sharpen and a conversion tool
by Tangible software. We also have a lightweight R# plugin developed for us
to help with porting tests (where conventions don't really matter):

We should probably settle on one method and stick with it, preferrably one
that produces the cleanest code, and one which can work both with
directories, single files, or file parts
