I've enjoyed using the Java BigInteger class and at least one 
security profession has told me that they were chagrined to find that 
Java RSA was running faster than their custom C application. So Sun 
did a better job of at least one relatively smart person I know.

Plus, there's a built in tool for finding large primes. It's a great class.
