Are there any plans to upgrade the game to run with java 7 instead of java 6?

Actually, at some point the game was compiled with java 7. But, because a lot of people still have java 6, I came back to java 6.
I'll probably release the two versions in parallel at some point.

That would be great, because I have a friend that needs java 7 for his work stuff and doesnt want java 6 to interfere. Any idea when you might go back to implementing it in both?

as far as I know, java is downward compatible, which means that you can run java 6 software under java 7, so I'm not sure if it's really needed to release a seperate programm for java 7, as long as Build And Defend doesn't want to use any features that introduces Java 7.

Build and Defend currently doesn't recognize Java 7 and forces you to download Java 6 if you don't have it installed. So even if it were download compatible, build and defend currently doesn't let you use it.

is it possible that you're using the .exe file?
If you do try using the .jar because that one is the programm itself.

For the sake of more input for the developer(s) to read...

And this is totally my opinion, it's not that big of a hassle to get the game working in terms of java version and all the other prerequisites and such. I just think that focusing on gameplay itself would benefit more to the game and community.

But in saying that it's not a bad idea and it's great that you're showing interest in such a great game to begin with :)

I run java 7 on both my Windows laptop & my Linux gaming computer and the game works just fine on both.

Java versions should be cross-compatible as long you have the higher version installed.
