comment Which one of the Block Cipher modes is the best?
Yes, it's quite misleading - I have done exactly the same a while ago. When you see implementation of GCM params you expect the GCM is there too, but then I get these NoSuchAlgorithmExceptions...

GCM is not really usable in Java 7 because actual cipher-suites are not present in that JCE. Most people use IAIK or BouncyCastle for that purpose. Java 8 should also have GCM by default.
