Can I use Java in a Gadget Plugin?

I'm writing a gadget for Jira and since I'm not really good at Javascript I was wondering if it is possible to refer to data in a .java file. It would make handling information so much easier for me.
I'm thinking about writing code similar to a report.

Is that possible?

Data handling can be done in Java, in a rest plugin. The UI rendering will still be javascript.

Lots of Javascript!

So, do I need to add a rest pluginmodule to my plugin?
and how do I access the code?
