Java is platform independant and c++ is not.
Java is easier to learn and use that c++ making it less expensive for a company to invest in. I guess the lack of pointers is a big contributer to this.
Java is less prone to difficult to solve bugs (probably due to above) - this is just hearsay.
You can get a Java Compiler and RTE for free.
JavaRanch is more fun than any c++ site that I have found.
