    Default google search

    I was wondering how it is possible to highlight a phrase and use some hotkeys for example "ctrl+1" in java to search that phrase by google?

    Check out Desktop#browse(URI)

    You will need to build up a suitable URI from the selected phrase in the form that Google expects, something like
    "http://www.google.com/search?q=" + word1 + "+" + word2 ...
    where word1, word2 ... are split from the search phrase.

    You may need to convert special characters into their HTML entities (not sure about that).

    nasi, you may wish to review google's terms of use to make sure what you want to accomplish doesn't violate it. There are other tiny issues you may have with doing what I think you wish to do, such as parsing/displaying the html output as well as receiving correct output from google (in my experience is wasn't as simple as D.B.'s suggestion - one suggestion: if accessing via a URLConnection make sure you set the user-agent request property, for example to Mozilla)

    I have checked their guidelines, I am not going to send lots of queries simultaniously.

    Sorry Copeg, but I don't know how to set user-agent request property. I can not find any method regarding it in URLConnection class

    in java , i have no idea
    but in a diffrent programming language i know a really
    easy way to do that

    if ur on a windows machine check out autohotkey
    i've used it for all kinds of small things , including
    doing some tedious homework and a little thing
    that types in what i need in the cmd to compile classes
