Hi,

How can I write a routine that will download a web page and store it on my hard disk.  It also has to download all associated objects including Images,Applets, etc ?

for eg:if i type "www.yahoo.com" ,i should download the complete webpage including all.

i have tried with the following code i can not able to get the images

                        URL url=new URL("http://www.kumudam.com");
                        InputStream conn=url.openStream();
              BufferedReader input = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(conn));
                    String line ;
                        byte data[]= new byte[1000];
                        int size = input.read();
                        System.out.println(size);
                        while ((line = input.readLine()) != null)
                  
                            System.out.println(line);
                            input.close();
Thanks in advance

you'll need to parse the html, here's an example showing how to extract all the links.

http://www.javaalmanac.com/egs/javax.swing.text.html/GetLinks.html

You can then download the data pointed to in the link.

objects is right.

When a browser access a page, it loads the page and all of its assocated objects through a series of GETs.  The first get is the HTML of course.  Then the browser parses the HTML and as it encounters a tag that refers to an external resource it issues another GET to retrieve and render the resource.  Your code would have to do something simalar.

and when you get the image links as described by the link given by objects,
you can save the images to local file system like

http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jsp?thread=433352&forum=31&message=1940583

basically you would be looking for
HTML.Attribute.IMG

you will need to find the <APPLET tag as well for downloading applets

yes if it not standard html, or uses recent features it will have problems.

you need to look at a different parser, perhaps a commercial one.
