The normal distributed workflow is to push to a *bare** *repository, that 
both A and B can read from.

A and B are both *non-bare* repositories, and it doesn't make sense to push 
to a non-bare repository. Consider you had a central repository called 
"origin". Then you could push to it from A, and then pull changes into B.

Please have a read 
through http://git-scm.com/book/en/Distributed-Git-Distributed-Workflows - 
then you'll have a better idea of how you want to do it.

Regarding JGit, you better have a look at http://eclipse.org/jgit/ and ask 
in their forums <http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php?t=thread&frm_id=48>
