Java Native Compiler for WinCE

Hi everybody,
I have a java application which can be used by desktops as well as PDA/Handheld devices. Since the size of the application jar file is around 3MB, its nota good idea to distribute it for PDA/handheld devices due to memory constraints.

Is anybody aware of a Java native compiler , which will convert my application Jar to an WinCE executable.

I searched a lot on the intenet but there is no product which exactly satisfies my requirements. A few like SuperWaba/Waba create a WinCE exe but only for the programs written in their proprietory language.

Any suggestions/guidance from you would be most appreciated.

Thanks & Regards

As much as I hate to say it this way... if the issue is trying to get something into 'native' code for the destination platform, maybe you ought to be looking at different languages. :-\ In the case of WinCE, maybe it's time to look at something like C#, which is similar to Java but is part of the .Net platform and is more likely to be in the vein of what you're looking for... (Just going from the theory of 'the right tool for the right job' given your definition of what you're searching for...)
