Almost true ,
Java's appplications range from stand alone desktop applications, to web (apllets or jsp/servlet based) applications , complete enterprise solutions, All kinds of mobile media(cell phones,small hand helds,smart credit cards etc)....the point is Java's usages are so wide spread that there is no way you can categorise it that its good for one tech and not for another.
It is true that since these are webdevelopers forums, and since a part of java can be used(allot better then any other tech) for web development. its well suited for these forums as well as it could be under any other hard core programming languages section.(though if you think about it C/C++ can be useg for web development as well - CGI programming)
my 2 ( or may be one) cents....
