The other way around, that is managed to native interop, is almost identical except that you’ll wrap native objects and that the called side will be managed and the calling side will be native.Though wrapping with C /CLI is quite simple it remains a tedious and error-prone process: imagine if you need to export dozens or more managed classes!NET Framework version 4.00.30319.18034 Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.

Moreover I’ve used it as an opportunity to greatly enhance the content, especially the description of the C /CLI wrapper implementation, design rationales being now included.
The article has been updated on the 19th of June 2016 to integrate 3 fixes: When it comes to software development in a professional environment, heterogeneity is the rule not the exception: you often need to interact with systems developed with other technologies.
I’ve been recently faced with such a situation: a team that uses only native C needed to retrieve data using the object-oriented API of another team that develops only in . This is a relatively uncommon scenario (just look at the number of articles on the subject), the standard case being new systems based on the . Net, needing to interact with legacy systems developed in native C .
