Java add-ins do not have a registry key set that is used by ArcMap to locate the add-in to start it. This happens to Java add-ins for ArcMap 10.0 where the add-in is defined as an extension and the auto-start flag is set to true.
We apologize that we were unable to address this issue within the current product support cycle. If the issue continues to affect your work in a supported release, please contact Technical Support.
The link below is a tutorial for a sample AddIn with Java.

When developing an addin in Java, do not set the autoLoad property to true.
