    Android apps are written in the Java language. However, they don’t run on a Java VM, and they use a set of class libraries that are not part of the standard Java runtime and not available on the desktop.

    In addition, speaking as a developer, the UI model for Android is very different from the standard Java Swing UI model. So you’d basically need to rewrite your UI code to port from Android to standard Java.
