If anyone is interested I've created a port of rsync in Java over at

yajsync has both a server daemon and a client part + a Java API. It
currently supports only a minimal set of features (incremental
recursion, preserve times). I am currently aiming for keeping it
compliant with protocol version 30.0.

This is a personal side project of mine that I have made for fun and
out of curiosity of the inner workings of rsync (after many years as a
user), so big cheers to Andrew Tridgell, Wayne Davison and all others
that have been involved in making such a great tool!
