Ok, I'm just starting JAVA, but i have much experience with many other languages (e.g. PHP, PERL, VB, etc...). I need a simple JAVA Applet that can get (http GET) an html page and display it. From what I've worked with in other languages this should be something fairly simple. I have no JAVA experience at all, but I really need this script ASAP. This JAVA  Applet will be an addition to a PHP suite that I am building for a client, and he needs this really soon! Thanks in advance experts.

The problem here is that an applet could only do this without being signed against a page on its own original host

So, if you do want to do this, you'd have to sign the applet or have an application

If you want to get a html page, you can use an URL object (package java.net)

    URL url=new URl("http://www.server.com/thepage.html");
    InputStream ins=url.openStream();

    // ... read from ins InputStream object

    ins.close();
