Brute force search means (like brute force methods in general) 'step through the waste of data', without regards to time or space, relying on the power of your machine. Once at the end you will be successful or not. The opposite are time and/or space saving methods. E.g. binary search in a sorted array.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
