I know next to nothing about J#, but I do know there's no such thing as the "best" programming language. Some languages have specific strengths and weaknesses, though.
Do some research into J# before you make your decision. You may find that it only runs on certain platforms or requires special software to compile.
If you're wanting to learn a new language, go for J#, but since this sounds like an important project, I'd say stick with what you know and focus on the functionality rather than the technology. Java isn't going anywhere, and it's quite powerful.

J# = Microsofts Version of Java,
Here is my recommendation if you want Java use Java not J#, if you want to go the MS way C#, C++ is what to look for.
I know someone who works for MS and he even said MS created J# to try to get Java programs to go with MS but its useless not as powerfull as Java itself.
i have never done much research on it, but this is what ive heard from other.

Yeah, I've heard similar comments made (though from a serial MS-sceptic rather than inside information). Stick with the tried and trusted, rather than falling for a MS marketing ploy.

ms wants to rule the world and make a maximum dollars of that. nothing else. so why support them.

Simple answer to a simple question, do you want reliability, enterpirse level programming ability on any platform known to man without constant server issues, virus attacks and unending problems.....? Avoid the wantabe MS, Use Java

J# only works with MS .NET framework - the MS version of J2EE - and is supposed to emulate Java. I don't know Java that well so I don't know which is better. I would recommend C# if you're going down the .NET path (or C++ if you want to do your own garbage collection etc). But the C family of languages is so similar to Java it shouldn't be that difficult to swap between them.
Of course, if you have a philosophical objection to anything MS, stay with Sun.

I think it's more moral than philosophical!

J# is an "extension" of Java made by Microsoft. It is generally assumed that MS made this to try and turn the Java language into a proprietary MS language, with the hope that so many developers would use this over the "real" Java that MS would have a leg up.
As far as I know JBuilder does not support J#. As far as I know only MS tools support J#. Unless you are planning on moving away from Java proper and only want to work for windows I would stay clear of J#.
