Read from Internet using URLConnection and BufferedReader

Java example to read from Internet using URLConnection and BufferedReader. Thanks for Tomtom’s comment in my last post “Read from Internet using URLConnection and ReadableByteChannel“.

package javaurlconnection;

import java.io.BufferedReader;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.InputStream;
import java.io.InputStreamReader;
import java.net.MalformedURLException;
import java.net.URL;
import java.net.URLConnection;
import java.util.logging.Level;
import java.util.logging.Logger;

/**

public class JavaURLConnection {

public static void main(String[] args) {
try {
URL url = new URL("https://java-buddy.blogspot.com");
URLConnection urlConnection = url.openConnection();

/*
InputStream inputStream = urlConnection.getInputStream();
try (ReadableByteChannel readableByteChannel = Channels.newChannel(inputStream)) {
ByteBuffer buffer = ByteBuffer.allocate(1024);

while (readableByteChannel.read(buffer) > 0)
{
String bufferString = new String(buffer.array());
System.out.println(bufferString);
buffer.clear();
}
}
*/

//using BufferedReader
InputStream inputStream = urlConnection.getInputStream();
InputStreamReader inputStreamReader =
new InputStreamReader(inputStream);
BufferedReader buffReader = new BufferedReader(inputStreamReader);
String line;
while ((line = buffReader.readLine()) != null) {
System.out.println(line);
}

} catch (MalformedURLException ex) {
Logger.getLogger(JavaURLConnection.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
} catch (IOException ex) {
Logger.getLogger(JavaURLConnection.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
}
}

}
