Give the URL of your file in the internet in the String. the result will be stored in result. If you know the type of file you are getting eg., .doc or .pdf give the extension to the file name.

                          String str = "Your File URL" ;
               URL url = new URL ( str ) ;
            
                  URLConnection connect  = url.openConnection() ;
            
                FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream ( "result" ) ;
BufferedInputStream input = new BufferedInputStream ( connect .getInputStream() ) ;
            
            int ret = -1 ;
            
            while ( (ret = input.read() ) != -1 )
            {
                  out.write( ret ) ;
            }
            
            out.close() ;
            input.close() ;

Cheers,
