Simple example of how to extract street coordinates in java


I’m very new to OSM. I want to be able to download all the walkable ways within a specified geographical area and get their coordinates from a java program.

I must confess to being somewhat overwhelmed by everything out there and would be very appreciative if someone could point me at, or give me, an example of this in action.

Thanks in advance

Maybe you can do some research at

and have a look for java based software solutions?
