hey all... have read so many different opinions about mixing javas and parrot finches... what is the general thoughts on adding a pair of blue faced or red faced parrott finches into my aviary that is 3.8 x 1,8 metres, with a bird room of 1.5. x 1.8 metres that already has two pairs of javas and two pairs of zebras ???...

Your breeding results probably won't be great, but nothing terrible will happen.

You will most likely find that the Javas will take over any nest box the Parrot Finches decide to use.
Personal opinion ditch the Javas and add a couple of pairs of compatible pairs such as Blue Face, Ruddies and Orange Breasts.
