If there is a specific scenario you have in mind, it would be best to
describe it and ask if Java is one of the better languages for the
implementation.

Pros:
* versitility "write once, run anywhere"
* quick development time... lots of code in the JRE & public domain
JARs

Cons:
* Performance of the virtual machine (Invoking the VM, GC, etc.)
* No direct memory access

Java isn't well suited where performance is the #1 priority, but you
should consider all of the other aspects to software--not just
performance--before choosing.

Cross-platform GUI-based applications. That's what I mostly choose Java for.
