From a web page? If there's a way to do it (I really have no idea) it'd have to be an applet; and probably a signed one. Technologies such as servlets and JSP run on the server and have no access to the client machine or its peripherals.

Or you might consider a desktop application that can be loaded via Java Web Start.
