What is device X and Y ? How are they going to communicate ? ( Network ?, serial port ?,USB ?, IR ?, carrier pigeons ? )

Yes, of course. Java programs (any version) can communicate with any other programs using many different means. A Java program can communicate with a C++ program, a Smalltalk program, a Python program, etc, etc. using a thousand different mechanisms.
