Using a servlet to log into a webpage

I need to get a
to pull info off of a page that I am sent to after logging into a website.
URL url = new URL("https://thesiteurl/Login.aspx"); HttpURLConnection conn = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection(); InputStream page = conn.getInputStream();
The above code gets me the login page. What I can't figure out is how to log in to get the needed page after login.
Any ideas on how to go about doing this?

I would assume that the authentication is there just to prevent such activity. That said, you might want to look into tools such as HttpClient.
