Well... yes and no.
You can install either Microsoft's Java VM or the Sun one and have it work fine; it doesn't ship with it installed, though. You may
also see XP claiming that your Java installation is damaged if you examine downloaded program files in IE.  Ignore that; I believe
it's a symptom of the core OS no longer "embracing" Java - which is probably A Good Thing.

Netscape 6.2 works fine on XP also - with Java support, of course.  I've actually played with several java applets over the last few
months and have had no OS-specific issues with any of them on XP.

: Isn't it true that XP has Java removed? Hence, it won't work?

: It does work a bit faster over low bandwidth connections.
: Interestingly enough, it does seem to also take less memory. I had been
: using it to connect to an underpowered NT4SP6a server (P200, 48MB RAM)
: and noticed a somewhat peppier response on the LAN even.
:
: My general rule of thumb has been that a standard VNC connection is not
: a truly acceptable performer at less than 56k dedicated
: bandwidth from server to client and more than about 10 hops away due to
: packet dispersion; I don't have any hard figures on the
: reduction, but I felt this put it just a little behind a Windows
: terminal services connection as far as response goes.
:
: Also, as you may have noted, if you are connecting from a Tight client
: or server to a standard server or client, it is still
: compatible (althouhg you don't get the speed benefits).  The only issue
: I have seen is that I could not get my XP system to talk
: Java to a TightVNC server, but that may have been due to something
: stuttering client side, too.
