Not in pure Java. You will need an ActiveX (COM) wrapper to plug into native Windows system calls.
There's probably similar systems you can use on other operating systems.

If you have a look at JDIC it might have what you are looking for. I am using it to integrate the IE webbrowser into an application and I see on their site that there is a similar thing for the system tray.
