HttpURLConnection and HtmlUnit

655260 Newbie
Currently Being Moderated

I am using these commands to get a webpage from my in-house webserver:

String urlStr = "http://localhost/welcome.jsp";
URL url = new URL(urlStr);
HttpURLConnection ucon = (HttpURLConnection)url.openConnection();
InputStreamReader isr = new InputStreamReader(ucon.getInputStream());
BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(isr);

I then read the file line by line, searching the text for this input tag:

<input type=hidden name=pagecode value=123>

Is there any easier way to get the value of this hidden variable?

Does the HttpURLConnection have some way of extracting hidden values directly?

Thank you for helping.
