Depending on what you expect in detail (ready-to-use-library or example 
code), and whether the licensing of the code is okay for you, you might have 
a look at the JOSM editor. Although I am not involved in its development, it 
is written in Java, and from using it I know two components which might be 
interesting to you:

- in the download dialog (Previously you needed a plugin for this, but now, 
I think, this is included in the program itself), there is a slippy map 
allowing to choose the area to download (probably just slippy map 
functionality, not WMS)

- In the WMS plugin, there should be code for actually accessing WMS 
services and underlying it in the view/edit area.

Does that help, or do you have other requirements/expectations?

Yours, Holger
