Not quite.  GCJ is an ahead-of-time (AOT) compiler for the Java
programming language.  However, the GCJ runtime execution environment
supports all of the dynamic properties of the Java programming language
(run-time loading/linking/verification, reflection, all of the binary-
compatibility rules, etc) for both bytecode and AOT compiled code.
