There is a tool called Squish: http://www.froglogic.com/pg?id=Products

Udo, could you update the table, if you have any experience with Squish?

The important questions are:
1. Can we modify generated tests using Java?
2. Can Squish generate JUnits?

I never tried this product but watched the demonstration video from their website:

It looks like you have to use one of their build in script languages. Probably there is no Java support in the actual version. They say on their web page that the next version is based on Eclipse, but no demo is available yet.
