The simple answer is no. However, if you are looking to make some sort of game, you could use a library LibGDX which will port your code to iOS (as long as you have a mac).

And there is also Codename One which doesn't require a Mac (since we host them in the cloud).
For completeness sake libGDX uses RoboVM which is the actual underlying compiler. There are also XMLVM, J2ObjC & Avian.

Of course you can... is not as straight forward as on MacOS where you have your JVM.. legal issues (no technical) have done "impossible" to run a JVM in the iOS environment so you have to "convert you jar packages and distribution in "native iOS programs", i recommed you to take a look to the JavaFX port site: http://javafxports.org/page/home have a nice coding.

They'are also some apps that allow you to run java websites, one of them i believe is called Photon. In terms of efficiency I experience both good and bad times.

In my humble opinion, as long as there is no official support of a Java VM on iOS, any workaround and effort of running java on such platform won't go very far.. with all my respect to solutions like robovm and similar approaches.
