Your Q http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Java/Q_21823855.html contains a link on how to read from a URL.

>> using Java Swing OR J2ME midlet

That depends on your application's final deployment - where is it going to be done? On some server or some hand-held device?

>> Which is easier? what libs or codes do i need?

For Swing, you need the JDK for development:


For J2ME, you need: http://java.sun.com/j2me/ Download the wireless tool-kit.

You might also want to download some IDE like Eclipse 3.1.2 (www.eclipse.org) with a plug-in for J2ME (www.eclipseme.org) or Swing (www.cloudgarden.com/jigloo) depending upon what you need, or Netbeans 5.0 with Mobility pack (www.netbeans.org).
