URL-problems!

Hi,

I'm trying to write a snippet of code, to determine if a URL-documnet
exists, before I use it with the AppletContext.showDocument-method, and
it looks like this:

private boolean fileExist(URL url)
        {
            try {
                InputStream testStream = url.openStream();
                } catch (IOException ioe) {
                    return false;
                }
            return true;
        }

, but it doesn't seem to work!

NetScape's implementation of Java doesn't seems to catch the IOException
at all!

Is there a better way?

It worked Ok for me in netscape 3.01.  Following is the
full text of the applet that returned false:

import java.io.*;
import java.net.*;
import java.applet.*;

public class Test1 extends Applet
{
   public void init()
   {
      try{

      // Returns false.

      System.out.println( fileExist( new URL( "http://www.zeh.crom" ) ) );

      // Returns true.

      //System.out.println( fileExist( new URL( "http://www.zeh.com" ) ) );
      }catch(Exception e ) { System.out.println( "--"+e ); }
   }

   private static boolean fileExist(URL url)
   {
       try {
       InputStream testStream = url.openStream();
       } catch (IOException ioe) {
       return false;
       }
       return true;
   }
}

Are you running a different version of Netscape?
