You can license any of your code under the GPL, regardless of the language 

The objection against Java is similar to VB: it is still a proprietary 
language, albeit a rather open and portable one. While there are free 
implementations of it available (free as in freedom, not cost), they are not 
considered as equal to SUN's implementation yet, and SUN will keep preventing 
them from becoming equals.
