Well, perhaps it is through some unknown 3rd party library. I'd say Google will help you out more in this case then we can.

If such a library exists, expect it to be non-free though.

OpenOffice has a server mode in which it can be driven through a Java API. That should make it possible to create spreadsheets that contain charts, and save them as Excel files. The OO API has a steep learning curve, though.

In server mode OO runs as a background process with no GUI, and can be used over the network through an API. See here for some hints on how that might work.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
