Are you asking for a Scheme source to Java source translator, or a 
Scheme library for writing Java source files?

If the former, maybe you want a full-bore Scheme-to-Java compiler. 
There's Kawa -- but I don't know if it goes source-to-source, it may be 
a source-to-bytecode compiler.

What kind of requirements do you have?  Does it have to be a complete 
and featured Scheme?  Does code need to operate with arbitrary Java 
code?  If the answer to both is no, you could take any textbook 
treatment of a Scheme (or FL) compiler and map it into Java by hand.

Professor-J is going from Java to Scheme, so I doubt it.
