  You do that by not asking for a read-only connection !

    /**
     * Constructs a Connect object from the supplied URI.
     * 
     * @param uri
     *            The connection URI
     * @param readOnly
     *            Whether the connection is read-only
     * @throws LibvirtException
     * @see <a href="http://libvirt.org/uri.html";>The URI
     * documentation</a>
     */
    public Connect(String uri, boolean readOnly) throws LibvirtException

since your code does

    conn = new Connect("qemu:///system", true);

you asked for it. Please read the docs/code !
