Java people dislike Perl (from what I've seen), far more so than Perl folks dislike Java

Maybe. I don't agree with one language is superior than the other. I think people with that mentality will run into pitfalls eventually. There are definate advocates of each language, I'm all for that. I think each(language) has it's uses - I've said this time and time again.
There are several PM'ers that use JJ as well, I know of several programmers out in the real world that use both(Perl and Java). We use both languages here, each are used for a particular application or process. Depending on what's best for the process or application. There are Java communities out there, but of course.. I'd like to see JJ succeed.
It may be ironic that it's run on Perl, the idea has come up to write it from the ground up in Java. It just takes time, right now I'm not sure how many people can invest that time into something like that. BTW, CJAN has come up.. maybe that idea will skyrocket. I think it's just a matter of time where people can come together and share their ideas in a somewhat central location.
