I got an example from OOo for jar to native compilation.
It may not be lightening-fast but ...
... there it still speeds up the process.
What is done there:
* jars -> native libraries
* .java -> native binaray
What used to do a JVM with jars now does a native binary with jars
compiled to native libs. Time went down from 3h40 to 2h45.
I hit a oom-killer feature of gij - run as JVM - there on my 512MB ram
testbox. If you compile that Java source to native that oom-kill
Still, just an example.

In a perfect world ... ;)

I use gcj successfully on my testbox.
As far as it is possible. And with ecj as bytecompiler all my ugly hacks will
be a part of the past.
Only trouble I have actually is eclipse-sdk. Another oom-killer at runtime.
May be I find the time to get it to native code somehow.
