Hi kiran and Scott

First of all we are already developing a VNC server in pure Java (JNC)

Java is good IF you seek cross platform support
also, we use Java because we intend to implement a three tier, Web enabled
VNC system based on Java Server side technologies (JSP & Servlets)

Basically, most VNC related functions are supported in java 1.3 in class 
java.awt.Robot
But Java lacks some core OS features like hooking and screen resolution 
handling
We are now trying to find workarounds for these problems

Bottom line , use Java only if you need to. If you don't need to support 
various platforms
or to use Java server side stuff then Java would not be the best choice for 
you.
