Passing reference-type arguments

You are browsing legacy Javonet 1.5 (Java<>.NET bridge for Windows) documentation. Use the left side menu or click here to switch to latest Javonet 2.0 documentation. Javonet 2.0 allows you to use any module from JVM, CLR, Netcore, Python, Ruby, Perl, NodeJS on Windows, Linux and MacOs from any application created in Java, Clojure, Groovy, Kotlin, C#, F#, J#, VB.NET, Python, Perl, Ruby, JavaScript, TypeScript, C++ and GoLang

With Javonet, you can very easily pass any object from .NET Framework DLL as argument to any method from .NET Framework DLL, or substitute a field or property from .NET Framework DLL. Instances of objects from .NET Framework DLL can be stored in your Java application using the special NObject\JObject type variable. When passing the NObject\JObject object to the called method, Javonet just pass it as a reference.


I code in:
// Todo: activate Javonet

//  “Now” field gets a value from DateTime
NObject nowDateObj = Javonet.getType("DateTime").get("Now");

// create a new DateTime value, passing a date of 1980-01-01 as constructor arguments
NObject date = Javonet.New("DateTime", 1980, 1, 1);

// subtract two dates
// The datesDiff variable will store an instance of the TimeSpan object,
// that holds the difference between now and 1980-01-01
NObject datesDiff = nowDateObj.invoke("Subtract", date);

// write response to console
String result = datesDiff.invoke("ToString");
