It would actually be quite a good idea to get OpenJDK using zero/shark
running on Android as is as an alternative java implementation instead
of using Dalvik, it will give Android Java SE compatibility and prevent
a split in the embedded Java world.
OpenJDK currently have two jits for ARM the and Shark JIT (work in
progress on stabilising llvm for ARM) and the Cacao JIT we also have a
brand new and fast ASM optimized interpreter for ARM to be used on top
Another option are to use PhoneME on Android as is, it also contains a
JIT and would give Android Java ME compatibility,
currently as fair as i know Android are only compatible with itself
since it only uses a subset of apache harmony.
You can probably use the caciocavallo project to enable OpenJDK to draw
all swing and awt guis on Android.
