That's right, Google blocks Java clients. But it can be 'circumvented'
quite easily by setting the User-Agent request header with a value used

But doing so is a violation of Google's terms of service
( which says:

"You may not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system

Google does provide a way to get permission for automated queries for
your own personal use. Google provides a SOAP API, including Java
example code on how to use it. To use it you have to sign up for a
Google account and use your login in your query. This entitles you to
1000 automated queries per day.

If you need something more than that you will have to negotiate a
license with Google.

And it has been reported here recently that Google has ways of detecting
automated use and will start popping up a CAPTCHA
( when you submit queries from your IP.
