You could just use the CLI. Here's the example.

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/5.0/Data/MonitorfilesanddirectoriesusingtheCLI#Example_1...

What are you trying to do? Once you add the file for monitoring you could then use the SDK to search the new data.

For the Java SDK follow instructions on GitHub. Generate the javadocs and look for the class com.splunk.MonitorInput. There are examples as well.

Also, if you're simply new to Splunk, first of all make sure that you know the basics: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/5.0/Tutorial/WelcometotheSplunkTutorial
