Java is an unincorporated community in Pittsylvania County, in the U.S. state of Virginia. Like many such 'communities', Java has no focal point beyond a US Post Office alongside the local (volunteer) fire department building. The 'community' extends east a mile or so into Halifax County. Java contains no manufacturing operations beyond one commercial saw mill which—like local tobacco farms—is a significant employer in the area. That mill and others have increasingly been supplied by logging operations that have, potentially, been creating more farmable land through their clear-cutting practices. A downside to this clearcutting has been a loss of natural habitat for the native wildlife, including deer and bear.
