I know factors to be considered are based on environment and applications, among other variables, but I was wondering about the merits of each and future trends.
Any thoughts? How does/would Chrome change the equation?

Java is a server-side general purpose language, it is used to create also stand alone applications.
It is compiled in an intermediate language, the bytecode that then is interpreted by the JVM (each platform has its own implementation of the JVM).
Since it is a scripting language, it is really interpreted.
Hope this helps
