    There's no way to make it truly native with java, but you can use a native interface (Cocoa). To do this, create a Cocoa-Java application in XCode and import your java code into the project.

    Google around for tutorials on cocoa-java applications. There are limitations to cocoa-java that native Objective-C apps don't have... but it is still nice to have the cocoa interface.
