I am trying to develop a program which will read magnetic strip data using USB port. I have a card reader which does not have any SDK, through which I would be able to communicate with the device. Can someone help me on this? I am need to know how to begin?

I would start by working out if/how you can communicate with your USB device. Java does not provide native support for USB devices so you will need to use a third party library such as Usb4Java. BTW I've not used this library so I'm not necessarily recommending you use this particular library. However you might want to check out their site as they provide information on how to write a device driver etc.
