Actually if you want to program for the IOS, you need to use Objective C.

There is however a way to program in java and convert it to Objective C, you can find all the info here : http://xmlvm.org/iphone/

Thank you for the info, i would like to know if  it runs only only mac computer  or does it support window7.
Whichever programming language you choose, in order for the app to be accepted in the app store. You need to build your application on a Mac.

If you are using windows, you can create a virtual machine of Mac OSX and program/build it.

As i was going through the link which you have provided it tell me
"The iPhone SDK license agreement does not permit the development of a virtual machine"

that means if i set up  a virtual machine of Mac Osx of window  it will not work

Please comments on  it.

It'll work, but running mac osx on a vm isn't legal.
I'm not saying you should use a vm but if  you do use it, it will work.

There are a lot of developers , that develope on a mac OSX VM.

The best option would be to buy a mac.
