What do you have against Java ? It is actually the best environment for building graphical editors such as this due to the frameworks available.

Java is ugly and makes the machines very slow. From instance, graphical engines are programmed in C++ / C and certainly not in Java

A programme for Latex is made to be used by everyone. If you put java, it will used by no one or very few.
