If you were to just use C++ for the server code, this doesn't seem
to be a major issue.  It seems reasonable to have a C++ server and a
Java client.

What exactly do you mean by "memory loss"?  Do you mean leakage?
You can go a long way with smart pointers, a leak detector, and a
profiler.  None of them are perfect, but if you have decent coding
discipline, you can avoid all but the most subtle problems.
