I know this is an entirely different discussion, but...
why would you need to hide the code?

If I want to look at the guts of a java program (which isn't native to anything but a JVM) I can just decompile it.

Just an opinion but, to me IP law is what protects code ownership, not hokey compilation schemes. If someone wants to steal your program, they're gonna steal your program.

If the program is legitimately yours, then good customers will pay for it. I've seen some ginormous products, written in Perl, come in the door where I work, and it never kept the company from shelling out 6 or 7 digits for it. Granted, all of these products came with service contracts. But then again, I have this feeling high-end java based products come with service contracts as well.
