JNBridge, the leading provider of interoperability tools connecting Java and .NET, recently announced its most recent Lab. JNBridge Labs is a series of interoperability kits designed to help developers connect Java and .NET technologies in new and innovative ways. These labs are free to download and include all code and documentation. This allows developers to customize the kit to better suit their needs.

JNBridge has enabled developers leverage the superior graphical capabilities available in .NET-based programs like Microsoft Visio, to monitor an entire Apache Hadoop cluster in real time. This Lab transforms Hadoop beyond a simple HTML, into a dynamic framework that can run in the standard Windows and .NET desktop environment.

“Tools currently available for managing an Apache Hadoop cluster are restricted by the lack of direct API access to the Hadoop nodes themselves. Without robust interoperability and integration mechanisms, monitoring and managing Hadoop is either limited to simple HTML, or to a single implementation of Hadoop. This JNBridge Lab is unique in its versatility: showing developers how to push or pull any information in or out of Hadoop that its APIs permit. It works with any implementation of Hadoop, and the application can run in the standard Windows and .NET desktop environment,” said Wayne Citrin, CTO of JNBridge.

JNBridge Lab works with any implementation of Hadoop, and the application can run in the standard desktop environment of Windows and .NET. The best part about Lab is that it reduces the load on Visio by decreasing the number of times we draw to the Page. For those who want to know more about Lab, JNBridge has given a preview of app in action.
