    Essentially, you:
    - construct a URL with your URL
    - call openConnection(), then call getInputStream() on the resulting URLConnection object
    - pull out the data from the input stream as with any old input stream, probably wrapping a BufferedInputStream around it

    A while ago I put up on my web site an example of reading data from a URL in Java, which covers this case of binary data, plus the case of reading character data.

    You can do it only with 1 line:

    Java Code:
    FileUtils.copyURLToFile(new URL(....), new File(....));
    You have to include commons-io.jar from Apache
