Which is basically why Java doesn't buy you anything in the portability arena.  
There are some applications for which Java is an ideal choice (like dealing 
with lots of XML).

For an instrumentation application, Java would be a HUGE mistake.

For an instrumentation application, C++ is a very sane choice.  There are lots 
of benefits and lots and lots of libraries for all sorts of I/O, control & 
input cards/systems out there.
