yes, you can use the GL4Java library, but I can't recommend using it in a browser since installation of that library is quite errorprone and not something you would want end users to do.

OpenGL is practically the same with Java as it is in C++. In Java the overall program will be a little slower, but you will be more productive in the non-OpenGL related parts of the program. So you must weight productivity against performance when making this choice.
