Do something like

String url = "http://yahoo.com

Then use javas openURL command to open it

........
    try {
    someutility.openURL(url);
    return;      
    }
........            

Also you will need to catch various exceptions.Then create a search tool that searches the page for a given word.

......
if(wordpresent = true) {
  System.out.println("Word is present");
}
....

Regards.
