As far as I know libgcj has not been ported to RTEMS.

I cross compile it routinely.
I've ported it, too.  It isn't trivial, but it is possible.
There is some help available on the web page.  Did you look there?

I doubt I'll be doing an RTEMS port unless somebody hires us to do
one.  We rely on volunteer effort for things like this.

Try gcj --main=HelloWorldApp HelloWorldApp.java
