I am trying to display the the contents of the web page by capturing the output stream.Now the next task is to display the output stream on to console but i am able to get the result as 'java.io.BufferedWriter@14693c7'.
Please guide me what more has to be done in order to display the exact contents of java.io.BufferedWriter@14693c7.

Also tell me how to attach the string strLine with the url, such that when a call to maps.google page is made it should return me the results matching the search criteria.

    String directiveArg ="" ;
    // Report the arguments received
    System.out.println("Client key = " + clientKey);
    System.out.println("Directive  = " + directive);
    System.out.println("Args       = " + directiveArg);

    // Create a Google Search object, set our authorization key
    GoogleSearch search = new GoogleSearch();
    //reading input data from a file
    try {
    FileInputStream fstream = new FileInputStream("list.txt");
    // Get the object of DataInputStream
    DataInputStream in = new DataInputStream(fstream);
        BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(in));
    String strLine;
    //Read File Line By Line
    while ((strLine = br.readLine()) != null)  
      // Print the content on the console
      System.out.println (strLine);
      // Depending on user input, do search or cache query, then print out result
        if (directive.equalsIgnoreCase("search"))
         String temp =strLine;
         URL url = new URL("http://maps.google.com");
         Proxy proxy = new Proxy(Proxy.Type.HTTP, new InetSocketAddress("proxy.xxx.com", 8080));
         System.out.println("url is "+url);
         URLConnection con = url.openConnection(proxy);
         BufferedWriter bw1 = new BufferedWriter(new OutputStreamWriter(con.getOutputStream()));

                       " (search <query> | cached <url> | spell <phrase>)");

Collect the output in a StringBuilder
StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
//Read File Line By Line
while ((strLine = br.readLine()) != null)  
String content = sb.toString().trim();
