Have you tried looking at javax.comm http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/index-jsp-141752.html
It provides an API for dealing with various ports but it doesn't work on the Win OS.

I have a vague recollection that there was a spin off project called something like RXTX that did work on Win OS's. A quick google for something like "RXTX" and/or "Java parallel port" may be the way to go if you are on a Win platform.
