it is generally frowned upon to cross post. Choose most appropriate forum to post to, and post it once. If you have made the wrong choice, the forum moderator will move it to the most appropriate forum for you (as done by Kyle Brown) for no additional charge.
quoted from Dave Vick:
Thanks for posting your query here in the <jdbc> forum, however, please don't cross post your questions to multiple forums, most of the visitors here read in many of the forums and it is frustrating to see the same question repeated over and over - you have a better chance of gettng a correct and timely answer if you post it to the most appropriate forum instead of using the shotgun aproach and hoping you'll hit something.
as to the question, I'm sure that you can run the procedure using native code(probably converted from VB code using ADO), but through java, I don't think so. You also may be able to purchase some proprietary software/jdbc drivers to perform this functionality.
