I'm not sure that's true.  Flash was once considered future-proof and you can see how that went.  The future of Java is entirely up to Oracle at this point.  I'll grant you that makes it a good bet, but it's not a guarantee.

I'd bet on C (ECL) before I bet on Java.  No one company could kill it even if they wanted to.
