These are two separate things, no?

GCJ has full reflection support.

GCJ can also load/link/verify and run bytecode, resulting in a mixed
AOT-compiled and interpreted system.

GCJ can optionally compile bytecode on the fly into .so files which are
loaded and cached for future use.  This is similar to the JIT systems
you're familiar with.  I would characterize this mechanism as

GCJ could host a traditional JIT compiler, if somebody put the effort
into it.
