Shourya, I think your definition of UDP is slightly confusing.

Sockets using UDP (User Datagram Protocol - not Unix Domain Protocol) is
supported under java. The classes DatagramPacket & DatagramSocket have
been available since Java 1.0 in the java.net package.  

AFAIK Unix Domain Sockets (I think this was what you were really
referring to) are not supported since it is not cross-platform.
