Currently I don't think this is implemented, but the plan is that this
would be done through the API.

Galaxy is primarily a web application, and the API provided is REST /
HTTP based. The python scripts are command line wrappers for accessing
this. If you want to use the API from a Java application, you would just
access it directly through the web. We do not provide any special
support for Java, but you are welcome to contribute and API wrapper.
