I really doubt if it can be done in java. Your program might need to sit on a network card and analyze packet data and cherry pick them. I have not worked with java sockets much but I really wonder if it can do something like that. C++ on the other hand is very capable with sockets. It can even allow you to implement raw sockets if you so please and the networking APIs are pretty fine grained and very powerful.
