public class SendtoFacebook {

	public static void main (String a[]) throws FacebookException{ 

	SendtoFacebook sfb=new SendtoFacebook();
	sfb.send("From My App: publish steven on facebook");
	public void send(String message)throws FacebookException{

		String FB_APP_API_KEY = new String("YOUR APIKEY");
		String FB_APP_SECRET = new String("YOUR SECRET");
		String FB_SESSION_KEY = new String("YOUR SESSION KEY");
		FacebookJsonRestClient facebook = new FacebookJsonRestClient( FB_APP_API_KEY, FB_APP_SECRET, FB_SESSION_KEY );

		//FacebookJsonRestClient facebookClient2 = (FacebookJsonRestClient)facebook.getFacebookRestClient();
		FacebookJsonRestClient facebookClient = (FacebookJsonRestClient)facebook;
		Attachment attachment = new Attachment();
		attachment.setCaption("Caption for attachment");
		attachment.setDescription("Description for attachment");
		attachment.setName("Hopefully this works");

		AttachmentMediaImage  attach_media = new AttachmentMediaImage( );
		attach_media.addImage("", "");


		facebookClient.stream_publish(message, attachment, null, null, null);

			System.out.println("successfully updated");

  4. You need to give a public URL and not your local system URL. try some url from flickr or something else.
