As we can see java is not only the language anymore it put its hands and bridges on almost everything
that is why I would propose to introduce topics dedicated to such bridges.
Most of us heard about Jython so users can share experiences around Python to Java bridge. The same to Groovy, JRuby.

Second: there is no category about Java to hardware (scanners, printers, other USB devices)

Third: Java is community driven, correct me if i am wrong but I can not imagine java without the open source. Young developers, fresh heads
might share ideas, ask advices from old experienced open source guys. I would propose the category for discussion of open source projects existent and planned.

Have you looked at the forums we have? We already have perfectly good forums for all those topics, well, except maybe hardware, but we do have General Computing that is probably good enough for that. For Groovy, JRuby, Python, etc, we have a category Other Languages. We also have several forums for open source projects. We also have a forum for Other Open Source Projects for the cases where we don't have a specific forum.

New Forums and categories are generally driven by a) the amount of existing traffic for a particular subject and b) staff discretion. I'm curious as to if you think our existing forums I mentioned don't satisfy your requests already?

An excellent idea! I think we will all support you in all the topics you introduce on these bridges.
