The major problem with Java/.Net (or most VMs for that matter) is not its speed, but rather the high memory requirements for initial JIT compiling of bytcodes whenever they are loaded and the GC tuning that is required to develop performance apps with it. A way around the JIT memory requirement is to do AOT. This would however not solve the GC problem and make your Java app non WORA.

The J2ME JVMs tend to interpret code when there isn't enough RAM to JIT compile classes. Some J2ME VMs, like the IBM J9, can accept AOT compiled classes that do not have the JIT overheads, but would only run on CPUs they were targeted for.
