What is the issue?  If software which you want to use is written in Java
(and not natively compiled, which I suppose it might be but isn't what
you're asking about), then you have to run the JVM.  It's just one more
of many bytecode interpreters available to developers, amongst which is
also included the Perl bytecode interpreter.  Why should Java be special?
