Swift is a Java compiler (ahead-of-time compiler) written in Java.

You can find some papers on it here:

Since it compiles Java bytecodes, I suppose you could say that it's not a
real compiler because it doesn't really have to worry about lexing and
parsing, but as far as code generation, optimization, register allocation
and what not, it's a true compiler.
