theoretically yes but in actuality it can be a little difficult. As ant is

then it is quite possible to do anything thou you may have to actually
write some code for things not related to java and general filesystem
because no one yet has done it.

BeOs maybe out depending on whether the Kaffe port ever got finished for
that platform. However any platform with java is able to run it with
relatively few problems.
