xml-rpc

Hi everyone,
I am doing thesis about social networks. I need to crawl user profiles from LiveJournal in order to use the data to test my own model. The question is I don't know how to use LJ xml-rpc. I intend to get the data in format of foaf. Java is my preferred language. Do I need to download any LJ api? If anyboday can give any examples or similar case, I appreciate . I am new here, so if my question sounds silly, please...
