Does anyone know how to get Java-based programs to work under Android?

Specifically I'm trying to get the Java version of PCGen to work on my CM7'd Touchpad so I don't have to keep remote logging into my home PC when I'm gaming.

I'd appreciate any advice anyone has (or, you know, a complete walk through if you happen to have one lying around).

You can't. Android uses the Dalvik VM and can't execute Java Bytecode (PC Java *.class / jars). Theres also no port of the GUI libs for android so you can't just compile it for android.
The only way would be porting it to android (re-writing the gui for android).
