Develop java applications for Iphone

Using a concept called XMLVM (its opensource!!) its possible to develop java for iphone by cross compiling bytecode.

XMLVM serves as an umbrella for several projects. For all projects, a Java class file or a .NET executable is first translated to an XML-document. Based on the XML-document generated by the front-end, various transformations are possible. The first transformation cross-compiles from .NET to JVM byte code. Another transformation enables Java or .NET applications to be cross-compiled to JavaScript so that they can run as AJAX applications in any browser. Yet another transformation allows to cross-compile a Java program to Objective-C to create a native iPhone application.

The technology is in early stage... Take a look at the recent google talk video.
