For JIRA OnDemand you can excute REST APIs and it's enabled by default http://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/. Not sure what you are trying to achieve but if you want to access the source code using Eclipse or such applications you will need to have a commercial license for JIRA download version.

I am using JIRA for bug tracking.

Instead of going to jira everytime i am planning create dashboard and then i can post issues in my dashboard

REST is the best way http://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/

You could write plugins in java, but not for OnDemand (yet)

Can we access using java language instead of rest apis ?

I think you may be confusing *method* with *language*.

Java is a language you can write things in. Including Jira and plugins that you can install in Jira. REST is a method for systems to talk to each other.

If you want to write something to talk to Jira, then you could write it in Java, and use REST to talk to Jira. Or you could write it in C and use REST as the communications method. Or write it in Java and use SOAP for communication (SOAP is deprecated though).
