There are several OCRs written  in Java, for example :
javaocr (www.javaocr.com)
asprise (asprise.com/product/ocr/index.php?lang=java)

asprise has a good accuracy in comparison to other OCRs.

There are no native opensource Java OCR SDKs.
There are Java APIs which wrap calls for native interfaces, for example, for one of the most popular opensource OCR engines - Tesseract (http://groups.google.com/group/tesseract-ocr/) - there are some Java wrappers like tesjeract (http://code.google.com/p/tesjeract/) or Tess4J (http://tess4j.sf.net/). That could work for you, but it's rather hard to set up and will require developing image-preprocessing and font training on your side.

One more solution could be a cloud service. It requires end-user application to have the internet connection, but it's independent from your programming language choice and resources limitations. Have a look at ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK (http://www.ocrsdk.com), it's a cloud-based OCR SDK recently launched by ABBYY. It's in beta, so for now it's totally free to use and it has a ready-to-go Java code samples (https://github.com/abbyysdk/ocrsdk.com/tree/master/Java).
