Since you want a Java library, I guess you don't need SVG as a hard
requirement. I'd recommend X3D, a standard for 3D vectorial graphics.
More info at http://www.web3d.org/

There are several libraries for working with X3D, both commercial and
open source (see
http://www.web3d.org/x3d/content/examples/X3dResources.html#Applications
), and Xj3D ( http://www.xj3d.org/ ) seems to meet your requirements.
