    No, because there is no runtime for those platforms. Of course hypothetically if someone were to create one then yes it would be possible, but it is not going to happen - at least Apple is not allowing it and Android... well just read about the legal fights between Google and Oracle right now.

    What Oracle is working on though is to be able to bundle the runtime with your application, which is going to see a major boost in Java 8 as far as I have read. That opens up the possibility to put Java based applications in the different app stores, including the Apple one.
