I have a WML page which gets directed to a servlet.The servlet points to the yahoo's WAP site to get stock quotes. How can I get the quote information from the WAP site ((i.e. response from the WAP site) into a variable, so that I can manipulate the data & get rid of unwanted information?
Right now I'm able to get the stock quotes, but there are some links like Disclaimer,etc. which I do not want to display.
Thanks.

well you have to send a http request from your servlet to the yahoo site (i don't know what the request looks like for wap) and then parse the information to get the quotes..so the request and parsing is done by the servlet and then wml data is returned with the quotes embedded into it
