Is it possible to make a POST request from within a Java application. How exactly can this be achieved?

Yes. Take a look at the classes in the java.net package.

More specifically, you want to use the URLConnection class. The "setDoOutput()" method is the key to whether you'll make a GET or a POST.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
