Certainly.  See the rpc/transport example in Sun's package,
at http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/products/xml (it's
now an updated release, TR2).  That has both a client and a
servlet component.  Servlets plug into web servers; that
could be Apache, or any other servet that talks servlets.

The application can define whatever standard it chooses for
how the data is exchanged.  If XML is already in use it's
easy to just exchange documents.  If not, it may be desirable
to use some predefined least-common-denominator DTD like
"XML-RPC" does.
