Is this a question?
I don't think so. Converting Smalltalk to Self is pretty easy compared to
converting Java, especially Java bytecode, to Self (or
Smalltalk). Overall, the approach to go is pretty obvious, but quite a few
details of the Java VM specification like synchronized methods or
exceptions make things difficult if you want to get good performance.
However, the idea is intriguing as not "Java the language" but "Java the
waste amount of libraries" is what I'd like to use. For this, you'd
however need to translate bytecode and probably also support JNI.
