I think the point of llvm-java was to avoid a JVM. That is, it converts
either Java source or Java bytecode into equivalent LLVM bytecode. I
think the big thing lacking so far are the Java library and support for
things that LLVM doesn't natively support (threading, synchronization
come to mind).  If you need more detail, Alkis (author of llvm-java) is
going to have to respond. Otherwise, you'll need to take a look at the
