     1= Differences Between the CLR and JVM = 
     2 
     3This is a quick reference to differences between the CLR and JVM. It also bleeds into differences between C# and Java whose features often include compiler-level-only features that the underlying VirtualMachine is not cognizant of. 
     4 
     5== CLR has... == 
     6 
     7 * CLR has unsigned types 
     8 * CLR has namespaces 
     9 * CLR has explicit interface implementations 
     10 * CLR allows non-overridding methods when the same signature (called 'new') 
     11 * CLR has value types 
     12 * CLR has non-virtual methods (I don't think JVM does) 
     13 * CLR has events 
     14 * CLR has `out` and `ref` parameters 
     15 * C# has partial classes 
     16 * C# has closures 
     17 * C# has yield 
     18 * C# can have multiple classes in a single file 
     19 
     20== JVM has ... == 
     21 
     22 * JVM has no generic types. This is purely at the compiler level. I've read that you cannot overload a method by a generic type such as List<of int> vs. List<of String>. 
     23 * Java has exception specification on the method level. 
     24 * Java has non-static inner classes 
     25 
     26== Other Differences == 
     27 
     28 * assemblies vs. jars 
     29
