Translating HTML pages into Java Objects

I am a relatively new programmer who is trying to write an application that parses/retrieves information from an HTML page, and extracts relevant parts of the HTML (usually from tables) into Java Strings.
I have heard of javax.swing.text.html.parser. Would this do the job, and if so, can somebody give me some pointers on how to use it. Some simple sample code would be useful, just so that I can work out how to use it.
Thanks, Neil.

You're in the wrong forum. Try 'XML, XSL, DOM and SAX'

//servlet
public void service(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res)
throws IOException,ServletException{
//This userid getting from html page
String userId=req.getParameter("USERID");
