I would like to archive off snapshots of specific pages and store them on a local fileserver and serve them up locally.  What is the easiest method to achieve this?  I know it's a broad question, but I need a pointer in the right direction.

The easiest way would be start command line tool like wget, and this can be achieved by using java.lang.ProcessBuilder

If you want to use java then httpunit is a good option see: http://www.httpunit.org/doc/cookbook.html

if u really need to do it by your own code, you need to parse the initial( or index) html file, parse it, get all referenced files(javascript, image, css files) and download them separately. Really tedious(is this spell right?) though.
