Did they lock you up in a dark cave all these years?

Java is definitely heavy. It is slower and uses a lot of memory. Most people 
who care about application performance use C/C++/assembler. Most people who 
care about rapid app. development go for Java/C#(.Net).

HTML is mainly for presentation.

JavaScript which is tied to HTML at the waist is also for logic much like Java 
but the logic execution is done on the clent-side and is mainly used for form 
validation, user prompts and window focus management.

Most development I know uses Java to generate HTML with javaScript pages 
dynamically depending on user input and available data from the back-end.

You can use other languages to produce dynamic HTML like PHP, ASP, ASP.NET, 
Python, Perl, etc.
