Welcome to JavaRanch, kit james!
Using a java.sql.Statement, you can execute database server specific queries. I'm not familiar with MySQL's dump command, but have you tried to simply execute a query using the same dump command that would be used from a MySQL console?

Ah, I just discovered that mysqldump.exe is an executable, not a MySQL command.
Take a look at The Runtime Class Documentation (and the getRuntime and exec methods).
