Java is platform independant and c++ is not.
Java is easier to learn and use that c++ making it less expensive for a company to invest in. I guess the lack of pointers is a big contributer to this.
Java is less prone to difficult to solve bugs (probably due to above) - this is just hearsay.
You can get a Java Compiler and RTE for free.
JavaRanch is more fun than any c++ site that I have found.

One thing is the removal of pointers, This helps prevent the exceptions that occur due to improper amangement of them.


I Hope This Helps

Does this also pose difficulty in implementing some thing that could have been done quite simply in C++ ?

Don't forget the wonderful Garbage Collector! This all but eliminates memory leaks, a common source of errors in C++.
