Python would be the preferred language for ROS imho. It's very easy to learn and very powerful as well. Maybe that would be an option?

I agree with @Chrissi. Try python if find C++ difficult. It's very easy and robust programming language!

I'd like to add that I find C++ somehow closer to Java than python so since the poster is a Java expert, it might be easier for him to start with C++.

While rosjava is certainly an option, I would recommend starting with roscpp or rospy (as the other posters have written). Once you get acquainted with ROS terminology and concepts, rosjava will probably start to make more sense. It is far more asynchronous and harder to 'wrap your head around' than any of the other client libraries (although if you are proficient enough in Java that asynchronicity should not really matter).
