[postgis-users] Exporting to Shape file from Java

A few options for writing to Shapefiles from java:
  * Geotools (http://www.geotools.org/) - I believe there is a ShapefileDataStore 
(http://www.geotools.org/display/GEOTOOLS/Data+Writing has a bunch of examples which may be of help).
  * JUMP/JTS (www.jump-project.org)  The JUMP package includes a ShapeFileWriter (and reader).

There are likely many others too.

Good luck,
