AFAI learned:
I suppose the code generator should be doable, regarding that there 
already are several supported CPUs. At least a working compiler might 
come into existence in a decent amount of time, adding optimizations is 
another project.

OTOH I suppose that a porting the RTL to a mainframe OS will not be easy 
and without this the compiler is quite useless.

Is there a Java virtual machine for zSystem ?

Maybe using the currently evolving FPC for Java target might be another 
way to go.
