   Yes, you can.

    Well you can use the standard SVG DOM to do this.
Either have one SVG path element (update the 'd' attribute)
or add a new line element for each.

    You might just use the standard Java2D API's.  It's
not that hard to create the GeneralPath yourself.  The
only slightly tricky bit is the display.  I don't know how
demanding your display requirements are.  If you only need
to put this up you may not want to deal with Batik but
if you want to serialize, do fancy stuff with display
(zoom/pan) etc then Batik might become an asset.
