Java Language Conversion Assistant (JLCA)

The Java Language Conversion Assistant (JLCA) is a tool that automatically converts existing Java-language code into C#. This tool accepts Java files and converts them to equivalent C# files. It creates its own project for doing so. Also TODO’s are inserted into your C# code wherein the JLCA converter fails to find the equivalent C# code. Version 1.0 of this tool ships with Visual Studio .NET 2003 and can be installed during Setup. This tool is also available with VS 2005. Now it becomes very easy for the developers to migrate their existing Java application to Microsoft .NET framework.
More information on this tool can be obtained from: http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/java/migrate/jlca/default.aspx

The link doesn't work. Any ideas where I can find this tool for VS2008? A search on MSDN only yields results for JLCA 2.0 and 3.0 (Beta), which only work with version 1.1 of the framework.

Acording to this page http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/c6t6bsdk.aspx, Java Language Conversion Assistant has been removed from Visual Studio 2008. However, it is still supported in previous versions of Visual Studio. I guess you must use VS 2005 and then convert it to VS 2008 (i'll try it)
