Hi here is my question: Is it possible and feasable to write a
compiler/translator from one language to java, in java ? Has
it been already done from any language in any language??
Thanks for the tips.

Yes, it has been done for Ada. I don't know if the compiler was
written in Java or Ada or C or something else.

This was a direct-to-Java compiler, not via an intermediate Java
language source form. But I presume that's better, not worse.
