I Google a lot and I keep only getting an answer for ArcGIS Pro Desktop version of creating a fish net grid for a polygon. If someone know if its possible to implement something similar or exactly that with ArcGIS runtime Java. I would really appreciate the help.
Thanks in Advance

There are a couple of approaches you could take to this.  One way would be to use Local Server to run a geoprocessing tool to create it for you.  I can see that fishnet is supported here Local Server geoprocessing tools support—ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Java | ArcGIS for Developers 

If you didn't want to follow the Local Server / Geoprocessing approach, it wouldn't be hard to to take the bounding box of your geometry and write some of your own code to create a fishnet.  You could display this in a graphic layer.

I'm not sure of your workflow or what you need the fishnet for, but do either of these ideas help?

The fishnet will be used to later on calculate covrage for large polygons. 
I will use bounding box like suggested to creat my own fishnet. 

Thanks for looking into this!!
