I would suggest to create a server/client application. The remote client would send through a socket to the server (in linux/unix) the desired command to be executed. Then the server would execute the respective code, as a normall local command.
I hope my idea help you.

If all you need to do is to execute a command at a remote server, you may want to take a look at those java implementaions of SSH client. Pretty much all linux distributions have SSH server included; that takes care of the remote side. All you need to do is to inject the command into the java SSH client. Here a link for java SSH implementaions:http://linuxmafia.com/ssh/java.html
