I have a jsp with the option for uploading files to the server, and I am looking for a way to pass the file through some kind of antivirus, does anyone know a plugin, a jar, or some way to do this in java??

Thank you!!!

Welcome to JavaRanch.

ClamAV is open source, so you should be able to adapt it to your purposes. I'd guess that the commercial packages also offer API and/or server functionality; check their documentation.
