A decent moder JVM with

performance hardly ever is a problem nowadays. Even with my graphics-heavy

in Java. I _never_ encountered a company doing in-house development in C++.

I's not the code that's portable, it's the binaries. Try to use a library
_compiled_ with C++ compiler A
with a program compiled with compiler B on the same box! You can sell Java
class files and run them on
anything from Windows, Mac, Linux to TueUinx, Solaris (rip) and AS400 mainframes.
