Is Java safe

Currently working on the design of a mission critical system and the client is requesting a justification doc for the use of java language from a safety perspective. I would appreciate any comments and issues that you have come across before and reasons that I should include in this doc.
Much appreciated.

Well to put it blutly even Sun don't recommend the use of Java for mission critical apps.  Though in their definition mission critical includes Nuclear plants and flight control systems.

Read somewhere Sun is working on a real-time Java. Most of the runtime is stripped away. Maybe no new() operator. If I find the reference I will post it.
