    Depends on what you want. One advantage of using OpenGL with java is that you get full portability, which may be a lot harder to get in c. However, java is much slower than c (but more elegant).

    I have been looking into using OpenGL from Java as well. I have not made a lot of progress, but I have summarized what I've found and added it to the FAQ I maintain. It might be useful to you...
