I have a html source and I want to read the table data from it using java
for eg:-
</table>
</tr>
<tr><td>Test Studio Id</td>
<td>Debug Code</td>
<td>getResponse Code?</td>
<td>getResponse Message?</td>
</tr>

<tr><td>TC_001</td>
<td>DC002</td>
<td><span class="pass">EXCEPTION_DECODE_FAILED</span></td>
<td><span class="ignore">Invalid serial number</span></td>
</tr>

I want to read the two values
1) "Test Studio Id" column values and corresponding
2) span class = 'pass' fromr "getResponse Code?" column.

Can anyone please help?

For simple html:  http://www.exampledepot.com/egs/javax.swing.text.html/GetText.html
but for something more complex, use a fuller-featured parser

Thanks CEHJ.. but I already have a code to get the content(source) of HTML file using java, now I want to get the specific values from the table inside that source/html content.

my code for reading the html file is :-
public class SourceViewerNew{
  public static void main (String[] args) throws IOException{
    System.out.print("Enter url of local for viewing html source code: ");
    BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
    String url = br.readLine();
    try{
      URL u = new URL(url);
      HttpURLConnection uc = (HttpURLConnection) u.openConnection();
      int code = uc.getResponseCode();
      String response = uc.getResponseMessage();
      //System.out.println("HTTP/1.x " + code + " " + response);

     
      for(int j = 1; ; j++){
        String header = uc.getHeaderField(j);
        String key = uc.getHeaderFieldKey(j);
        if(header == null || key == null)
          break;
       // System.out.println(uc.getHeaderFieldKey(j) + ": " + header);
      }
      InputStream in = new BufferedInputStream(uc.getInputStream());
      Reader r = new InputStreamReader(in);
      int c;
      Writer output = null;
      // File file = new File("C:\\SourceCode.txt");
        //output = new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter(file));
     StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer();
      while((c = r.read()) != -1){
        //System.out.print((char)c);
       // output.write((char)c);  
        sb.append((char)c);
      }

now I want to search my query in the extracted html content.

You'd need to reparse the collected html if you want to do it that way

Change the example from

>>Reader rd = new InputStreamReader(conn.getInputStream());


to
Reader rd = new InputStreamReader(new StringReader(sb.toString()));

Open in new window
