Google has added free open source client libraries for Java and Python to the Google Maps API.
As the blog post about the libraries says:
“the bottom line is fewer lines of code are needed to integrate the Maps APIs, and let's face it, less code means less work which means faster time to market!”
The libraries support several Maps API services, including:
The blog post gives an example of how you'd use the Geocoding API with the Java client library:
As explained by Alex Danilio in this introductory video, the libraries will retry connections on failure, and throttle the number of requests for rate limiting. You can choose whether to use an asynchronous or synchronous interface as both are supported.
The APIs are open source and code and examples are available on Github for both Java and Python
