quotes force string interpretation, try something like the following...

#+begin_src emacs-lisp :var lst='(0 1 2)
  (first lst)

: 0

or as a noweb reference

#+data: external-list
- 0
- 1
- 2

#+begin_src sh :noweb yes
  echo <<external-list()[0]>>

: 0

The only data types which can be passed between Org-mode code blocks
currently are lists (of arbitrary dimension), numbers and strings.
Hashes (or "dictionaries") are not currently supported.

see the :mkdirp header argument http://orgmode.org/manual/mkdirp.html

You probably don't want to pass the body of a code block to a lisp
function as quoting will become a nightmare, however passing the name to
a lisp block may be reasonable.

I would suggest that rather than implementing this behavior in a code
block you take a look at starting a ob-java.el file.  A partial
implementation (e.g., only external evaluation, no session evaluation)
would be a useful contribution, and given the many helper functions and
examples present in the other ob-* files this would most likely be
easier than a custom lisp-block implementation.
