Fingerprint recognition is a subset of the general problem of image feature recognitio which is in turn a subset of general image processing.
I found lots of references using the google search phrase "java image processing"
You need to become familiar with Sun's Java Advanced Imageing toolkit.

Same way u track a satellite. The only difference is that with a fingerprint u don't use a satellite tracking API; instead u use a fingerprint scanning API. The catch is that u have to provide the APIs in question since they're not part of the standard packages or extensions.

There is support for biometrics in general however. This will get u started.
