hi Vijay,
Well, Im also trying the same. Im trying to get some info for the same. Finally I found JTAPI (Java Telephony API) r espacially developed for this purpose (as mentioned in doc).
URL : http://java.sun.com/products/jtapi/
URL : http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jsp?forum=54&thread=104302
I tried Javax.comm package but it is limited to sending data from ports only.
Hope this info. is useful.
Thanx

Another option is to find a third party that converts emails to fax, this is the way we did it.
Its fairly easy to send an email via Java, and all you have to do is make sure the email corresponds to a format they dictate and they send the fax for you.
The down side is that there is a cost per fax involved.
Dave.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
