Learn to read the contents of a webpage using the tools.

In this article we will be looking at one of the most important components: the URL object. When we instantiate an object of type URL, we can create a stream using the URL.openStream() method. This in turn will allow us to use an InputStreamReader object to read the contents of the script into a Buffer Reader.


 Code Snippet 1


public class readSite {

  public static void main(String args[]) {
   //read the contents of
   //and output them to the console window
    URL siteUrl = new URL("");
    BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(
                                        new InputStreamReader(

    String inputLine;

    while ((inputLine = in.readLine()) != null)


  catch(MalformedURLException e)
   System.out.println("The Url doesn't exist");
  catch(IOException e)
   System.out.println("an Exception has occured");
