Java is 100% object oriented, big companies love it because it is scalable, the code is easier to mantain and you can use it for SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) which is the ultimate separation between business logic and programming logic.
I don't think you should totally drop PHP and forget about it, but learning Java won't hurt. Since you already know the concepts of web programming, Java won't be that hard to pick up.
About PHP vs Java, it really depends on the point of view. As I said, Java is 100% OOP while PHP is more or less hacked together.. some parts of it are OOP while others are not. Java is a mature language while PHP is still growing, look at
support for example, it's being added now in PHP 5.3 while Java has had it for ages.
