This link states that SAP JCo can be used for on-premise SAP to on premise Java Application connection.
If this is the case,can I connect Pega on AWS cloud to the existing SAP system.
Also,Pega's guide for JCo connector,mentions the following:
Create one or more Java classes containing one or more PRPC methods corresponding to the SAP
BAPIs used for your operation.
Use the Connector and Metadata Accelerator to choose the PRPC methods to include in the connector.
Does this refer to creating Connect-Java? Where and how should I create Java classes?
SAP JCo should work as long as you setup VPN tunnel between your AWS env and your own data center. Do not confuse WSDL connector with SAP JCo. The former is SOAP style of connection (no jar files needed) whereas the latter is simply a java client provided by SAP (which would require import SAP jars into your environment). The modern integration normally uses REST endpoints, I would be surprised if SAP does not provide that, use that if possible.

Thanks Kevin for your reply. SAP team insists on using JCo method and we have received the SAP software(jar) and DLL from their end.
However from Pega perspective,help and PDN material directs on using Java classes and choosing relevant constructors.Are these classes referring to the java classes on jar file because we didnt find anything related to the business logic in the jar.
