you need a proper access to the SMS Center servers of the Telecom Network provider in order to send sms to their subscribers. Please go throught the SMPP specs for the protocol required to access SMSC
However, if you're developing a simple desktop application, establishing such a relationship with the network providers may not be suitable for you. In that case, you can use a GSM Modem, which can be attached to you PC and you can issue AT commands from you java application using the javax.comm API. Please go through the GSM 07.05 standards for the standard AT commands for the same.
