I must confess my lack of experience with Java. Certainly you run far more 
Java programs than me. And I have to admit my lack of competence, too. 
Certainly, you can run Freenet, xt or Cocoon with kaffe.

Soap box: the thing I like with free software is the no-bullshit marketing. 
This principle is sometimes ignored, specially when it comes to Java.
