Hi all,
Is it possible to dial a telephone number through a java code, something like VOIP.

See what you can find on the comm package. Here is an article that might get you started.

The comm package can help you dial a modem using Java but it will not help you with VOIP. VOIP substutes a computer network for the telephone network. Since they're two different systems, you can't touch a normal phone with VOIP without something somewhere making the crossover. First thing to do is understand what VOIP is. There's a good intro article at How Stuff Works.

I'm a new bie to this ip-telephony. So let me start this first.
Is Java's Multimedia Framework is enough to do a Voice chat program, some thing like yahoo voice chat. It's like PC-PC so no PC-Telephone.

Do i need any external pheripherals for this ?

Starting simple would be wise. JMF is exactly what you need.

Microphone, speakers, network connection.

I think you're really asking whether there is a standard VOIP API. You can write anything you want in Java including your own VOIP API or a remote control for an Easy-Bake-Oven.
