Stay away from the commonly used Java SDK, it's bloated and it doesn't do what it says on the tin and it's unnecessarily complicated. It's simple enough to write your own, just a couple of methods to build and sign the requests plus whatever API calls you require - WWW::Facebook::API takes exactly this approach.

What would be nice if someone volunteered (or funded) the writing of a DBIx::Class/FQL connector.  This would make everything really super-easy.  (http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?WWW::Facebook::API::FQL).  I put together a proof concept command line thingy for my own amusement with facebook at one point, but didn't take it very far.
