There's a whole thread here on J2ME, the Micro Edition, which is used for embedded systems. C and Assembly will always rule for small embedded systems because you can run them on as little as 256 bytes (yes, bytes) of program memory, whereas Java requires something like 256K bytes. So, Java's making some inroads in larger embedded systems, but C and assembly still rule for the most part, with C++, Ada and a few other languages tossed in for good measure.
