Also there are several native code compilers out there, don't know if
they do m68k though. Also i guess some kind of java to C compiler
should permit you to test some stuff, maybe, don't know about thread
Alternatively, you could look at ocaml, sure it is no java, but a ML
family language, but it produce some kind of bytecode as well as
native code (altough not for linux/m68k, but does for sunos/m68k so
...) and there is a virtual machine available for m68k, even a debian
package (you will have to get the source package, perhaps remove the
make opt entry from the rules file and do it yourself, since i didn't
have time to build the m68k package).
