Hi. I am writing a prgm that uses google to query it's database. I am using java right now because it has nice built in web support, and runs on all sorts of systems. I am able to get website urls, but i need a way to get the source from those websites. Does anyone know how to do this in java? I would prefer not having to use any 3rd party libraries.

When you retrieve a web page, what you get is HTML source. Your browser [component] then renders that in a useful fashion for the user.

There are server-side technologies that generate HTML as a result of being processed by the server. You can't retrieve the sources to such technologies (ASP, PHP, etc.)
