Uses the Java client library

// The BlogId for the Blogger Buzz blog String BUZZ_BLOG_ID = "2399953";
// Configure the Java API Client for Installed Native App
HttpTransport HTTP_TRANSPORT = new NetHttpTransport();
JsonFactory JSON_FACTORY = new JacksonFactory();
// Configure the Installed App OAuth2 flow.
Credential credential = OAuth2Native.authorize(HTTP_TRANSPORT,
JSON_FACTORY, new LocalServerReceiver(),
// Construct the Blogger API access facade object.
Blogger blogger = Blogger.builder(HTTP_TRANSPORT, JSON_FACTORY)
// The request action.
List postsListAction = blogger.posts().list(BUZZ_BLOG_ID);
// Restrict the result content to just the data we need.
// This step sends the request to the server.
PostList posts = postsListAction.execute();
// Now we can navigate the response.
int postCount = 0;
int pageCount = 0;
while (posts.getItems() != null && !posts.getItems().isEmpty()) {
for (Post post : posts.getItems()) {
System.out.println("Post #"+ ++postCount);
System.out.println("\tTitle: "+post.getTitle());
System.out.println("\tAuthor: "+post.getAuthor().getDisplayName());
System.out.println("\tPublished: "+post.getPublished());
System.out.println("\tURL: "+post.getUrl());
System.out.println("\tContent: "+post.getContent());
// Pagination logic
String pageToken = posts.getNextPageToken();
if (pageToken == null || ++pageCount >= 5) {
System.out.println("-- Next page of posts");
posts = postsListAction.execute();
