Both the .NET Framework via the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) and the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) provide a managed, virtual execution environment for running high-level virtual machine code. As these two platforms become ubiquitous, it is of pragmatic and academic interest to have the capability of running CLI code on the JVM and vice versa. This project developed JaCIL (pronounced "jackal"), a CLI assembly to JVM class file bytecode compiler framework. JaCIL also provides a user program for running CLI-to-JVM translations and a runtime library to support the translated code.
