(Java newbie) retrieving data from a web site
Hello and sorry for my english.
I'm a programmer, even if i've not praticed from a lot of years. Now, i've decided to learn java for to restart programming.
I'm trying to make a simple java toy-application that retrieve the city today's temperature from a web site, i.e. Yahoo or other, and use it for something (for now simple print out at System.out...).
Now, in my actual knowledge, i have to build an opportune URI, for example weather.yahoo.com/Athens-Maine-United-States/USME0011/forecast.html?unit=c and open the opportune socket.
So i will scroll the html stream for to find the string "feels like" and after retrieve the temperature.
It feels to be not the best solution, but i have no idea to make differently.
