The GCC compiler for java allows you to compile java down to native code
(AOC - Ahead Of time Compiling). I have never tried it before but it's open
source and free to use. 

That being said I'm not certain that compiling your class files down to
native code is going to solve your problem since java web apps are dependent
on the class files generated by your application. Unless I'm missing out on
some functionality of Tomcat that I'm aware of I think your best bet is

Subject: Securing Tomcat Applications from Reverse Engineering


Can anyone throw some light on this topic, seems it is possible to convert
the tomcat+tomcat web applications to native code to secure them and further
to run them on client machines easily.

Please check this.

How could we achieve this without the above tool? Because the pricing of the
above tool is very costly.

Looking forward to hear some ideas for this.
