Even if you compile with gjc, you still need the virtual machine, which
is as far as I know not available.
But you have another option.
You can make your Java program OS-independent (as it should be) and run
it from the shell script in Cygwin using a usual Java VM for Windows.
For that, you need to fix paths in environment variables appropriately
(unix->windows) using the cygpath utility before starting java.
You can see examples of this in startup scripts of some well-established
Java projects like Tomcat, ActiveMQ or JBoss.
