Cordova is one possible way, but consider this: the ability to deliver a RIA
in HTML/JS means it doesn't have to be installed on mobile devices.  It can
just be browsed to.  The notion of RIAs in the browser as a zero-install
always-updated application was one of the things that made them attractive.
Just like in PC's 20 years ago everything was a boxed app and was installed
and when the network became fast enough and cheap enough apps in the browser
become popular, I believe the pendulum will swing that way again for mobile

And for those who have to build apps, maybe Schmalle will create a FalconJ
and you'll go native from there.
