Some time ago I mentioned a tool for converting Java code to Objective-C (minus any interface code).

Here’s an open source project that features an ahead-of-time-compiler for your Java bytecode for the IOS platform called RoboVM.

RoboVM already has a number of apps in the app store, and compiling your bytecode is done easily through an Eclipse plugin or a command line tool. If you’ve checked out RoboVM in the past it has definitely come a long way, and certainly worth taking a look at.

Here’s a list of some of the key RoboVM features:

Native iOS APIs and other Objective-C objects can be called like any other object
Standard Java classes are included based on Android’s runtime
Java bytecode is translated into native code
Many apps are already in the app store

You can find RoboVM on the homepage.

A great tool for those looking to bring their Android Java based apps over to the iOS platform.
