Hi, I am trying this code to send a HTTP Request to a Web Service to check whether the WebService is up or not at a given URL:

***********************

String requestUrl= "http://www.w3schools.com/webservices/tempconvert.asmx?WSDL";
           
            try {
           
                  URL url = new URL(requestUrl.toString());
           
                 
                         HttpURLConnection aConnection = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
      BufferedReader buffer = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(aConnection.getInputStream()));

                       String line = "";
                       while ((line = buffer.readLine()) != null)
                                                   {
                           System.out.println(line);
                       }

********************
But when I run the code, I get this exception:

java.net.UnknownHostException: www.w3schools.com

I can access this WSDL by typing the url in my explorer which means I have the connectivity to this URL. Any help on this, please?

Thanks

check your browsers proxy settings and use them when you run your app

Perhaps you have DNS problems. Try

String requestUrl= "http://216.128.29.26/webservices/tempconvert.asmx?WSDL";

strange thing happened... I tried the same code in IntelliJ IDEA and it works like magic... it works with the dns name i.e. www.w3schools.com.

Don't know what is the difference between the IDEs.

Anyway, thanks a lot CEHJ.

The original problem is still there, The other IDE I am using is eclipse but in a different laptop. Something to do with Network settings probably.

I'm wondering why you've accepted an answer if the problem remains undiagnosed ..?
