I don't know about microcontrollers, but in the past I've used Java to control remotely located radio equipment (transceivers, receiver, DF) in real-time. The control program used the serial port and actually wrote the hex control codes to the port. It worked very well!

Dhanno,
Please change your name to be compliant with JavaRanch's naming policy.
Your displayed name should be 2 separate names with more than 1 letter each. We really would prefer that you use your REAL name.
Thanks,

You might want to look at the Java Communications API: http://java.sun.com/products/javacomm/
