Well, let me disappoint you.

On the IT world, Java is used a lot, even for desktop applications.

I do contracting for several telecommunications companies, and in many cases, C++ left the building and is only being used in some very specific cases.

And nowadays Java is quite fast, plus it does bring you lots of improvements over C++, if I consider the tools that don't exist for C++ because of its complex syntax.

There are lots of areas where C++ still makes sense, like gamming, HPC or OS development, so I am not bashing it.

Regarding Jambi it is a nice project, but again, meaningless for what Java already offers.
