As your program is Java anyway you can do without the QIF and OFX
-intermediate-format and thus without needless mapping of the imported accounts
to your gnucash-account.
You could use jGnucashLib to read and write the Gnucash file directly.

The linked sourceforge-project consists of
* jGnucashLib,  a stable library for reading and writing gnucash's data-format,
* jGnucashEditor, a java-tool ment for bulk-operations and automation and
* jGnucashViewer, a standalone viewer that requires only java to be
present on the host.
