Help with a program
Hello, I am new to the forum and fairly new to java, so I am in need for some help.
I am trying to make a program that starts by downloading the source code of an online RSS feed (the url address will be inputted by the user). Any help in how to do this part?
For getting the info from the metadatas I will be using DOM... any other suggestions, tips or helpful links are welcomed of course.
JOptionPane.showInputDialog and httpURLConnection ?
What you have found so far. httpURLConnection is much better for your implementation. Seems you want to know about UI development as well as downloading. At the time breakdown them into two steps and workout one by one.
Swing is the solution for the UI part, as masijade says in his post JOptionPane can use for the user input handling. Read the Java doc for more details.
