This article deals with second order periodic Hamiltonian systems. We apply variational methods to obtain non-constant periodic solutions. For the time reversible Hamiltonian systems, there exist connecting orbits joining pairs of periodic solutions. Our methods can also be used to treat heteroclinic orbits connecting an equilibrium to a periodic solution.
