I think Java > is dead slow and needs too much resources to perform a specific tasks, Personnally I'm not a developper, I never write a software (more complex thant «hello_world»). I'm sys-admin and I never see a GUI Java software run correctly on all OS. Many commercial software have a GUI java installer, I don't understand this thing. Because It really suck....To do just something like «tar» and «chmod» we don't need a big thing like Java. But on server side, event I don't like theem, the software like Jakarta-Tomcat work fine. There need lots of lots of memory but they work. IMHO if you write a gui frontend to FreeBSD I don't see the advantage to use Java (For install jdk14/15 from source you need linux/sun-jdk/lot_lot_of_memory). You can use something like python if you want objet-programming. Or maybe Ruby.
