First you should prepare the provider configuration either statistically or in your code to utilize the pkcs11 library

read the pkcs11 guide on java web site if you are not clear on this.

After getting the store  installed properly it will be just the general utilizing a KeyStore and a Provider to get the proper Objects of the security functionalities provided by your token.

If the token has the provider for j2se 5 and above, using it will help u get rid of many immature problems in previous version implementations.

If your token is not providing any provider on its own rather just a native pkcs11 library try utilizing it with the SUN PKCS11 library.
