I have one more... I am ATTEMPTING to write an application that retrieves from a weather website the temperature of a specific location (based on input from the user). Everything I have says once I have created a URL object, I can create the URL connection. I have some documentation on creating the connection but cannot find anything on creating the URL object. Again, thanks!

URL myUrl = new URL("http://myUrlAddress");

The sun java tutorials are also a good place to start when looking for info on how to do something new.

I agree. Here's the link:
