C++ is used for a large number of applications, particularly those where performance is an issue. Bjarne Stroustrup maintains a list of major applications written in C++ here

Most commercial Java Runtime Environments (JRE) are written in C++. So, when you think you are using Java, you most likely are also using C++ and don't even realize it

While arguably true, it is also completely moot. It is not like you can claim C++ experience while working in Java....

C/C++ is still very prevalent in financial services, particularly in trading systems (and even more so, if those systems require low latency and/or high throughput).

Agreed that C++ has been used in the world class products but when we compare the job market of c++ with Java, i would say the market of c++ is small. c++ is used by technical savvy companies where performance is considered to be god. where as Java is used by millions of companies in millions of products.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
