Hi everybody,

I want to know if it is possible to use C++ and java code inside the maxscript code, some references to the topic would be helpful...

Thank you.

No, you can't. MaxScript is similar to c++ though. You can also write plugins in c++ if you like, but then it's not a maxScript.

You could call both from MXS with the command prompt. Check out shellLaunch and DOScommand to see if they do what you are after.

Oh, I think I missunderstood what he wanted. I thought he wanted to write MaxScript with Java syntax (similar to what you can do in NET).

Might be what he is after, I just figured this might be an alternative.

Depending on what you need the C++ code to do you can compile a MAXScript extension plugin (*.dlx) with the MAX SDK. Doing so would allow you to call the C++ code from MAXScript.
