The desktop app could connect to the server using HTTP. While it's possible to transfer actual Java objects in binary serialized form, in practice that's hard because serialization doesn't work well (or at all) between different JVM versions. Transferring a text version of the data (maybe obtained by using the java.beans.XMLEncoder class) would be simpler. See this example for how to send a POST request to an HTTP server and read its response.
