Any Good argument WHY it should be there, as long we got Anaconda (which is much faster than everything else) and Native runtimes?
I might find that Anaconda deserves to be in camel's bladder? I probably will not be able to afford the commercial exporter?

While Java is great and all, I don't think it would be necessary for MMF3 to export to it. There's not much you can do with Java that you can't do with another of the platforms.
I disagree. Install the latest Java to get a nice list of what uses Java.
Android can also be included on the list because it's basically Java and XML with some extra classes for the device specific stuff, so it should be fairly simple to port between the 2 platforms if the object doesn't use device only features.
It's like i have said before and people just don't realize what java can do, think of it just as the web plugin or simply want to monetize games so it's less popular than other runtimes and they get focus instead because of that, simple as that really.
Java is far from dead. As far as an application platform goes it's great. You don't need to worry about speed unless you are hell bent of producing a game but for an application platform it's been going longer than a lot of other interpreters. If extension devs could spend the same amount of time on this as Flash and the Native MMF runtime we could be building apps just like the windows executables. I guess because coding is similar to C it would be like rewriting the windows exporter no one likes trping out code that's why we have MMF bus someone has to do it in order to create the exporter and extensions Java is too much hard work me thinks.. IMO being able to build a Java based solution is a must.
I just think a decent Java runtime benefits both the user base and the product. With good cross-platform exporters MMF2 becomes a more attractive proposition to both the existing user base and a wider professional user base. Clickteam will definitely have far greater priorities than supporting a Java runtime. One of those will be the Android runtime which could be absolutely brilliant. It's extremely valuable to be able to export to Android, iOS and Windows Phone 7 from a single application, and it's easy to see why this should be higher up the priority list than Java support.
