We consider the possible röle of Java as a language for High Performance Computing. After discussing reasons why Java may be a natural candidate for a portable parallel programming language, we describe several case studies. These cover Java socket programming, message-passing through a Java interface to MPI, and class libraries for data-parallel programming in Java.
