Is there any way to specify a commit message for a merge commit while merging with MergeCommand?

Or should I merge with Merger and MergeMessageFormat instead of MergeCommand to do that?

Just tell the mergecommand not to commit and only to prepare the merge. Then call commitCommand to specify your commit message. See here:

		Git git = Git.init().setDirectory(...).call();
		RevCommit initialCommit = git.commit().setMessage("initial empty commit").call();
		RevCommit commitOnMaster = git.commit().setMessage("next empty commit").call();
		git.commit().setMessage("next empty commit on side").call();

		git.commit().setMessage("my special merge commit message").call();
