If you're using the Dropbox API v2 Java SDK:

a) to get a direct link from which you can download a file, you can use the getTemporaryLink method.

b) to download a file directly as a stream, you can use the download method. That will give you a DbxDownloader. The example there shows how to get a stream to read the data.
