Hi all,

I'm trying to write a small java app that will take a url as a parameter and return the status code for that web page.

i.e. GetStatusCode

returns: 200 OK

or something like that

Can anybody show me a small example using the URL classes please?  is there a way to use certificates??

You can use the following code

 public static void main(String[] args) {

     try {

         // Create a URL object
         URL url = new URL("");
         URLConnection urlconn = url.openConnection();
         HttpURLConnection conn = (HttpURLConnection)urlconn;
         System.out.println("Code is " + conn.getResponseCode());

hope this code helps.
