I got an xp home pc and its so full of rubbish that i just want to completely start agen, from scratch. its got no recovery disk cos its self build, and its an xp upgrade from 98 which i dont ahve a cd for, but I do have an xp pro full cd. what i wanna know is how i would go about formatting the hard disk then putting windows back on.

You can format and install XP all from the XP Pro disk you have. Just set the BIOS to boot from CD.

What do you want java for? You want to reformat , you do what Spikeychris said and all will go as you want. No need for java, i've done several formats and installations of XP and don't have the faintest idea what id do with java.
Sorry i guess im ignorant, ive been called worse!
