Yes.

Do you mean purely withing Java? I'm sure the answer is yes, but I would not do that. Use 'lame', which is a cross platform program designed to do exactly that.

Do not reinvent the wheel, use someone else's wheel and do something creative.

You may be able to use LameOnJ for that.

Try Google, search for "java encode mp3" for example. This looks useful: MP3 Encoding in Java.

One problem with this, is that MP3 is not a free format. You'd need to pay a license fee to the inventors if you'd want to publish an MP3 encoder.
