USB itself is very much involved with the hardware and OS, so it's not suitable for support in generic Java, although OS's that make the USB look like generic serial devices can be used with Java by programming for serial Java I/O. Or in some cases, network I/O.
On the other hand, if you want lower-level USB support (such as hardware identification and specific USB protocols), you'll probably have to go with a JNI library specific for the OS and hardware you want to work with.
