How to manipulate a Google Reader account from Java?
There is no official API for google reader .
I want to fetch the list of subscriptions as well as links of all the feeds.

If I had to find out the solution of this problem, I searched. How ??
First look at code.google.com, and find out has Google got an API for Google Reader, No, then search Google Reader API, no results
that's mean Google yet to have API for Reader OR you simply can't access it.

If there's no official API, then you'd have to resort to programmatic web access, using a library like jWebUnit or HttpClient.

Hi Dittmer,

Can I use Watij - Web Application Testing in Java for the same?
Which one will be better among these three(jWebUnit ,HttpClient ,Watij)?

Thanks.

I'd prefer jWebUnit over HttpClient, because its API works on a higher level, saving you from writing a lot of code.
