Google "Over the last few months we have been hard at work getting Native Client ready to support the new Pepper plug-in interface. Native Client is an open source technology that allows you to build web applications that seamlessly and safely execute native compiled code inside the browser. Today, we've reached an important milestone in our efforts to make Native Client modules as portable and secure as JavaScript, by making available a first release of the revamped Native Client .[...]In the coming months we will be adding APIs for 3D graphics, local file storage, WebSockets, peer-to-peer networking, and more. We'll also be working on Dynamic Shared Objects (DSOs), a feature that will eventually allow us to provide Application Binary Interface (ABI) stability."

So you saying that Java is not-native code and it's not interpreted? Wow! What kind of logic is that? Having Java byte-code JIT'ed doesn't make it non-interpreted, otherwise it would be compiled which it isn't.
Unless a third option other than "compiled" or "interpreted" has been found just for Java, it is not different from any scripting, VM'ed, or compiled-to-intermediate-code language.
Of course, you're not saying that Javascript, which is now just as JIT'ed as Java and needs a host program just like Java is not interpreted... or are you?
