    No. Safari does not support Java, and Apple does not allow third party apps to run user entered code. It's one of their security stances. Makes it harder to break a device if you can't enter and run code directly.

    However the app CodeToGo will allow you to create/edit code, then compile and run it on their servers. It supports a fairly expensive set of languages, including JAVA.

    Not ideal, but if you just need a learning environment or to test code, it may be enough. There is another app that does the same/similar thing, but I can't remember the name.

    Hi

    I intend to cross compile my game that I wrote in java
    with this thing (xmljvm) to objective c to port to iOS.

    Any one has done such an act of laziness (not to learn objective c)
    and have been successful?

    Any comments?

    Thanks.
