    Default How to download an image from a HTTP URL

    I want to download an image from a HTTP url and show it to the user. I know how to show an image to the user if it is in the form of Image/BufferedImage but i dont know how to download it. Should i use a third party library or does Java have a built-in support for this?

    Yes, Java has excellent built-in support for networking.

    You can use the following code to download the image:

    Java Code:
    try {
            // Create a URL for the image's location
            URL url = new URL("");
            // Get the image
            java.awt.Image image = java.awt.Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getDefaultToolkit().createImage(url);
        } catch (MalformedURLException e) {
        } catch (IOException e) {
