Not possible. Either the if or the else will be executed. It's not possible to execute both.

However, there are ways to do that in C/C++ - but I doubt if that is possible in Java

What is a world of ifs and elses if an if can be an else? Such a world would be decidedly metrosexual. Everything would be 'OK' but for some reason nothing would really work any more.

Maybe Java8 will have a "You're OK and I'm OK" feature and really screw things up. Can you imagine backward compatibility issues?
