Well Java fizzled. The virtual machine was slow and clunky and it was faster to download a new webpage with a 28k modem than use Java. There's still a lot of hype, but only a select few use it. Java is better suited at building desktop applications like OpenOffice not web applications.
I think you're too quick to dismiss the popularity of Java web application frameworks like WebLogic, WebSphere, Geronimo, etc. And OpenOffice is (mostly) not written in Java.
