This is not possible using the regular java classes as this is highly OS and shell dependant. You will probably need to assume the user is using a specific shell and OS to be able to use colours.

There is a project that looks promising that you could check out: http://www.nongnu.org/jcurzez/
You could also implement this yourself, using escape characters for the assumed terminal. But as I said, this could be difficult as the escape character and escape codes differ from shell to shell/terminal.

Hope this helps!
