No. To do that, you'd need to have a Java bytecode compiler
like javac or jikes. We don't have that available on the Newton.
You'll need to compile your Java code on your Mac/PC and then
convert it to a Waba package.

That's what you gotta do. It may be a dumb question on my part, but are
using the Waba libraries? You have to get your Java code into Waba-style
Java (don't use the AWT, for example, use waba.ui.* and waba.fx.*
And don't use doubles or longs or threads or exceptions. If your code is
compiling against the Waba libraries, the converters should be happy

If by this you mean to do the equivalent of BeanShell (type raw Java
and it runs) the answer is, that'd be really cool! But no, it's not
