I think, how to use [netsend] in Pd should be pretty clear, it's described in
the help-file. The trick part then is to make your Java app get the messages
from Pd over a socket connection and interpret the Pd messages. Example code
for dealing with that in other languages like bash, Python or Perl is on
puredata.info (setch for "pdsend.py") and in this lists's archive. I don't know
Java let alone your application, so I cannot help much with that.

Maybe on the Java side, OSC is a bit easier if you use some OSC libraries.
