    Welcome to Software Recommendations! We will need more information to give good recommendations here. Please take a look at What is required for a question to contain "enough information"? Then please edit your question and see if you can incorporate some of these improvements. Like you are you wanting a GUI or CLI fine? what OS(es) (Even though Java is cross-platform it is good to specify in case of system library requirements)? Jul 6 '14 at 14:03

    Are we looking for this for you to include in a project, or as a standalone application? If you're primarily interested in the former, answers would include libraries, if not, they would be software. Jul 7 '14 at 2:48

Yes, there is a Java open source SMB/CIFS implementation, it is called JLAN.

I have used it for 6 years and I am quite happy with it.
It is used in many companies by employees to perform their everyday work, so it is pretty robust.
