Off the top of my head I'd recommend:

JUSB: http://jusb.sourceforge.net/
 -- for usb camera communication

JXTA: http://www.jxta.org/
 -- P2P layer for Java

Tomcat: http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat
 -- If you need a central point of access for your comms

There is a Java Jabber Server: http://open-im.net/
 -- Jabber is a well defined IM protocol...
