If you like what you have recorded in a test with Selenium IDE for Chrome you can follow this tutorial to convert it a Java program using WebDriver client API,

1. Right-click the test name "Search Test". You see the context menu.

2. Click "Export" command from the context menu. You see export options.

3. Select "Java JUnit" and click "EXPORT".

4. Save the exported Java program file to a folder like "C:\fyicenter\SearchTest.java".

5. Open the saved Java program file in a text editor to review.

// Generated by Selenium IDE
import org.junit.*;
import static org.junit.Assert.*;
import static org.hamcrest.CoreMatchers.is;
import static org.hamcrest.core.IsNot.not;
import org.openqa.selenium.*;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.interactions.Actions;
import org.openqa.selenium.support.ui.*;
import java.util.*;
public class SearchTestTest {
  private WebDriver driver;
  private Map<String, Object> vars;
  JavascriptExecutor js;
  @Before
  public void setUp() {
    driver = new FirefoxDriver();
    js = (JavascriptExecutor) driver;
    vars = new HashMap<String, Object>();
  }
  @After
  public void tearDown() {
    driver.quit();
  }
  @Test
  public void searchTest() {
    driver.get("http://sqa.fyicenter.com/");
    driver.manage().window().setSize(new Dimension(1211, 648));
    driver.findElement(By.name("Q")).click();
    driver.findElement(By.name("Q")).sendKeys("selenium");
    driver.findElement(By.name("Q")).sendKeys(Keys.ENTER);
    driver.findElement(By.xpath("(//div[@id=\'item\']/p/a/span)[6]")).click();
    driver.findElement(By.linkText("What Is Selenium")).click();
  }
}

As you can see, the exported Java program uses the FirefoxDriver class from the Selenium WebDriver Java API. But you can change it the ChromeDriver class if you want to.

The exported Java program also requires JUnit (open source framework to write and run unit tests in Java) package to run.
