The first step will be to determine which processes on the Unix box you are allowed to use. Another good question for your Unix administrator will be the security protecting those files.
If you are lucky you will be able to use a well established process like FTP. A google search for "java ftp client" gets lots of options.

There is no SSH support in the native Java libraries, but plenty of packages out there. Google found this
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
