Hi folks,

There's always OpenJDK as an alternative to Java. It would be a safe bet if Oracle decides to wring some money from Java.

IMHO, there's room for more GUI tools. For example, Citrix XenCenter does not work with Xen 4.1.2, though it works with XCP 1.1. I have considered most of the open source tools available for Xen administration, but I found them either a total overkill, or wanting for several reasons. Finally, I settled using the xl tool, which I find suits my needs (a bit crude, but does the job to the point).

I'm hoping Oracle plays nicely for the years to come, it seems like using Java 
in a FOSS environment today is like cursing on American television.

To conclude: Java works (for us). One can only hope its reputation gets better 
in the years to come.
Actually, besides being somewhat sluggish and fat ..and pretty verbose
in its language part, Java had a pretty good reputation.
Oracle did take care to undermine that reputation and will almost
probably continue to look for opportunities of milking money out of
Sun technoligies.

@XenMaster: I would have expected any current Xen management
front-end/framework to make use of and help advaince the libvirt
