I'd suggest learning how to use ZFS snapshots and boot environments. Once you get a handle on them, it can be quite convenient to roll back in time or even boot back to a point in time before you started experimenting. Just a heads up, this is not exactly a 2-way street - rolling back is not a simple "go the other way".

FWIW, I actually stay away from anything Java-related in ports - it's a hot mess of things I don't want to touch. Packages (pre-compiled ports) may be a better option for you, but I personally don't like the default options that the packages are pre-compiled with.
