    My suggestion is to try writing the code yourself, and if stuck come back. Robot can be used to have a Java program click another program's buttons.

    I've dealt with similar problems. What your program have to do is:
    1. Login to FB
    2. Send requests, correspondent to the "Like" button clicks.

    I don't know, whether FB has it's own API for Java developers, but if it does than your task may be as trivial as reading documentation to that API.
    If there's no API for FB, than you'll have to implement the login and "like" button click process by yourself. I recommend to use some traffic analyser (such as HttpFox addon for Firefox, which I find to be pretty convenient) in order to observe, how does these processes work. And than you use some Java API for working with the network (either standard one, or you may find some more convenient alternatives over the Internet) in order to repeat these processes in automatic mode.
