I know your feeling. Exegen and Warp aren't very easy to use. But if
you specify your environment and double check that you got these
tools from Steve Weyer's website (i.e. it says Newton modifications
by Steve Weyer) and tell us what your problem is, we surely can help

Well, Waba is a virtual machine so it can of course interpret Java
bytecode, but I guess that it isn't what you meant. The answer is no,
you can't *compile* Java code on the Newton, you have to use a
desktop computer.
