Yes, people do have experience, as searching the list archives will show 
you.  The experiences reported tend not to be good ones (selection bias, 
of course).

The problem tends to be that SJava was last updated in July 2002 and 
has not been adapted for changes in R since.  I have a version for R 
1.7.1 on http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/RWin.  Simon Urbanek has been 
working on it more recently, and has a version available from 

Further, SJava is part of the Omegahat project, not R, and looking at its 
lists (if currently up: it generated a configuration error for me) would 
yield more information.
