If you just want to send a stream of characters to a printer, it would depend on how your operating system addresses the printer. On some systems you can open the printer like opening a file.
If you want to print a graphic page from a AWT or Swing application, look into the PrintJob class in the java.awt package.

It has been a while since I have done this but I think you can open it as
FileOutputStream( "LPT1:");
