    Default Downloading files from the internet

    I'm trying to add a updates checker/down loader to my program I've been developing for some time. I can get downloading files to work, but the data downloaded isn't saved to it's own file and directory. I need to be able to download file(s) and save it to the downloads folder.

    Can anyone point me into the right direction?

    What 'downloads folder'?

    Sorry, I should have been more elaborate. By downloads folder, I mean the current users downloads folder. If the user downloads the new client, it should go to the downloads folder of the current user.

    Does every OS even have that concept? Just asking.

    If you're looking for a way to locate a Windows special folder, you could apply the techniques I suggested in Find windows special folders (Java in General forum at JavaRanch)

    I know that Windows has a user downloads folder and so does Ubuntu. I'm almost positive MacIntosh has a downloads folder as well. But, what I need is a tutorial on how to download items from the internet.

    I can get downloading files to work
    or
    how to download items from the internet.
    Some confusion here. Are you able to download files or not?

    Are you trying to use HTTP GET to get files from a http server on the internet?
    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.
