I'm looking to port a Java project to the Windows environment, specifically Windows RT & 8 on tablets, and Windows Phone 8 (and maybe WP7.5). The project makes use of dynamic code loading during its runtime, so the C#/.NET environment looks like the best fit.

However, looking at this article, I'm confused. Windows RT cannot run .NET apps, but supports C# and has the WinRT runtime. Windows Phone is the same; it supports a .NET runtime on WP7.5, but only WinRT on WP8.0.

So is dynamic class loading a property of C# or the .NET runtime, and does this feature survive (along with the platform independence of C#/.NET) on the WinRT platform? What would be the best target for the port?

Many thanks.

Dynamic code loading would be in System.Reflection iirc, and most of that is offlimits for WP + W8 apps, due to security restrictions.

Reflection IS .NET official...

Many thanks for the responses. I guess the only way to really know is to start the port and see what the differences are.
