It used to be the case that HPC meetings had lots of papers on Java,
but while it's fairly easy to use, performance and scalability are
higher on most people's lists.

At one recent meeting I got a big laugh during the end-of-meeting
summary by noting that the words "Java" and "supercomputing" had not
appeared in the same sentence during the entire meeting.
