General Development "We are proud to announce the open source release of J2ObjC, a Google-authored translator that converts Java source code into Objective-C source for iPhone/iPad applications. J2ObjC enables Java code to be part of an iOS application's build, as no editing of the generated files is necessary. The goal is to write an application's non-UI code (such as data access, or application logic) in Java, which can then be shared by Android apps, web apps (using GWT), and iOS." Huh.

I am rather dubious when it comes to code translators from one language to another, but still, it's an interesting idea and I'll have to give it a whirl just for kicks if nothing else. A part of me can't help but remember that old Pascal to C translator and the god awful results that gave. Anyone else remember playing with that?
