+1 for Crashplan, big fan here...
Regarding the java app, it's totally fine, just customize your settings so that it rescans, then later does backups, all during the night when you're not using it... actually that's just common sense, you don't want your backups eating up your horsepower/IO/bandwidth during your work day... I have enough gripes with Time Machine without worrying about the online storage part.
Roughly $5 a month for unlimited offsite storage, coupled with Time Machine for any immediate local recoveries, is in my mind a very solid backup system.
Crashplan can also be used in a pinch from any web browser, to grab data to present to clients... there's a web-based restore, as well as iDevice apps, however it's not really meant for cloud sharing/availability... that's where something like Flickr or Smugmug would be better.
