We have just learned about it so hadn't had any plans yet )
Sould there be requests and real-world projects that utilise this tool we'll consider it.

I'm trying to imagine how to use it "in real world" from the morning. Not there yet :)

The J2ObjC project has improved quite a bit since it's initial release. It now can be integrated into Xcode so Java files can be added to iOS projects, and optionally provides source-level debugging (translate with -g) for Java sources. The big complaint our developers have with this approach is that Xcode treats Java files as plain text, and they want full Java support: syntax highlighting, formatting, refactoring, etc. You know, what AppCode could provide if IntelliJ IDEA smarts were added to it. ;-)

I'm a j2objc project contributor, and would be happy to work with any JetBrains engineers if there is interest.

Tom,
J2OC support is not of the first priority to us; and, it is currently not possible to integrate AppCode and IntelliJ IDEA.
But we will keep an eye on this project and may rethink our plans.

Regards,

This does sound interesting. It would be very nice to program in Java and be able to communicate to native Objective C methods: https://code.google.com/p/j2objc/wiki/NativeMethods.  Doing this within IntelliJ/AppCode would be great.

It may also be worth it to take a look into Codename One (http://www.codenameone.com) as well. I would think that many "Real World" Java developers would like to be able to develop with Java and have the output be native to their preferred mobile device. Ideally, it would also output to OS X.

I have a "Real World" project that could benefit from this.  I have  intellij Ultimate and an Appcode licenses for my entire team.  Simply having java language features available in Appcode would solve 99% of the problem.  Gradle/Groovy support would also be helpful.

Thanks,

Tim
