I would like to sync my eclipse workspace on ubuntu one, but this could become very big, with a lot of unnessecary files, how could I get ubuntu one to only sync *.java files in a folder structure?

Why not just use git and only add the .java files to the git repo. Then have a folder in your U1 shared folder as a remote?

Seems like a really simple solution.

Currently Ubuntu One supports ignoring certain files, but not syncing only specific files. The previous git suggestion sounds reasonable.
