I want to be able to drive a client connected scanner from an applet/servlet/jsp. Basically, I want to run an applet/servlet/jsp that allows the user to tell the scanner to scan a picture and then upload that scan image to the server.

That is I want to be able to enter data (say personnel) information into a browser screen and attach a picture of the person to the data and send the whole lot to the J2EE server.

You can communicate with local serial ports by using the Java Communications API. The applet would need to be signed. The Servlet / JSP aspect is essentially irrelevant as it runs on the server.
