WiredTiger was built as a general-purpose storage engine, with many different audiences in mind. As part of our effort to refresh the Open Source standalone release of WiredTiger, we reviewed the feature set and tried to identify functionality we could remove that would minimize our testing footprint while also being unlikely to be relevant to a significant number of users. The Java API was chosen among other features, mostly because MongoDB doesn't use it internally and we'd never done anything more than the basics of getting an API working (for example, it hadn't been tuned at all). Obviously, the SWIG support for WiredTiger is still there and will never go away, and a basic Java API should be pretty easy to recreate from that. I'm sorry, I hope this doesn't cause you difficulty!
