You can use java NOW, itís in the bindings package. But how exactly do you imagine that java can improve GNOME development? Java is nice for apps but for libraries GNOME will have to stick with C so Java wont improve GNOME the development environment, and most people chose their apps for themselves and donít care all that much if app A is an official GNOME app or not as long as it fits in and works.

Yea, I actually consider it a negative point if it's in the gnome dist because that means it will depend on a bunch of gnome libs that I may not want if I'm not using Gnome. And it will try and hide all its options from me. And I'll have to dig through gconf to edit any real options.

But, I like Gnome apps. I consider it a deal breaker if it's a kde app because I don't often use kde.
