It stands for "virtual private network." It's basically a means for connecting two private networks (or a single machine to a private network) by tunneling through another (public) network. Many companies provide such a facility to allow their employees to work remotely on the company's intranet.

This isn't particularly relevant to Java; setting up a VPN requires low-level networking facilities that are not available in Java.
