Ongoing litigation between Sun and Google mean it is unlikely that Google will add Java to ChromeOS IMHO. There is some interesting info here, both on the discussion and how to 'hack' java into your chromebook at the cost of losing automatic updates.

It is possible we might see a 3rd party Java plug in appear, but don't hold your breath
