Is it possible to use a java jar file for iPhone development. I have an app for android and I want to use my business classes in the iPhone app rather than rewriting those classes. I am just trying to estimate effort for iPhone development given the fact that I am a Java developer and it will take me a while to learn objective C to begin with.
I've not run across anything that will allow Objective-C to talk to Java directly. There are some project efforts out there to allow cross compilation of one intermediate language to the binary language of each native platform but this has more to do with the logic that controls screen navigation, etc than it does with pure business logic.
