BB's major works use bash. The guy that uses Java for virtually everything is Pierre. I mean, he creates Bio Java solutions named for BioStar threads! (Examples: https://github.com/lindenb/jvarkit/wiki/Biostar78400, https://github.com/lindenb/jvarkit/wiki/Biostar78285, https://github.com/lindenb/jvarkit/wiki/Biostar77288)

Because I have to write this software in java language and that is why I think that I have to use the BioJava libraries.

My feeling: you currently have no idea of what you're doing. Go back to your principal investigator and ask for more information.

What would you say that I have to use...because I'm totally at the beginning stage.

Use BLAST. Change your project.

The shell scripts are just wrappers; the actual programs are in Java :) But, I have not used BioJava.
