Well ... at least almost. There is some requirements for Beta-conversion when converting "readonly" to static final [...] and maybe some other syntactic differences. Of course, things like pointers aren't convertible - but since only C++ programmers would use them in a language like Java/C# anyways, it's less of a problem.

Oh, and someone stated that the "switch" statement doesn't exist in Java - it does and works just fine!
