Accessing Data From Websites in Java
I am pretty new to Java, so I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place or is a stupid question. Can I get a simple Java console program to access a website and retrieve data to store as a variable? I want a program that can log onto finance.yahoo.com or some other site and retrieve information about the stock market. Is there a relatively simple way to do this?
An example would be ronpaulgraphs.com. He has a java program that would go to Ron Paul's website and get the donation total every 20 minutes and then graph it.
