BeOS & Derivatives The OpenJDK Porters Group approved by a unanimous vote the proposal submitted by the recently formed Haiku Java Team to port OpenJDK to Haiku. This makes Haiku the first OS platform to be sponsored by the Porters Group, and it means that the port is now officially part of the OpenJDK family of projects endorsed by Sun. The team already has a mailing list and a project home page; a mercurial repository is also on its way. Team lead Bryan Varner gives his latest update here on his blog.

Well, it has a lot of use if cross platform is important to a developer (without having to maintain several versions of the source/binary) and fast performance is not an issue (not saying that java is slow, but it will never be as fast as a native binary).

The point? Just because you don't use it, does not mean that no-one uses it, and that its pointless.
