Wiring (the official name for the usual language people use to program
the Arduino) is actually C++ with preprocessing and nice libraries.
I haven't tried any C++ idioms for fear of getting monster code out of
it (preferring plain C instead), but it's avr-gcc under the hood.
The place where Java comes in is that the IDE itself is written in
Java, which is why you need a JRE on your machine in order to program
