Hello "SVKR"-

Welcome to JavaRanch.

On your way in you may have missed that we have a policy on screen names here at JavaRanch. Basically, it must consist of a first name, a space, and a last name, and not be obviously fictitious. Since yours does not conform with it, please take a moment to change it before your next post; you can do right here.

Also, please CarefullyChooseOneForum. This one is for posting certification results, as its title implies. I'll move it to a more appropriate forum.

As to your question, you'll need to supply more detail about what you're trying to do. What is a "screen" - a mainframe-type green screen? A web page? The GUI of a desktop app? Something else entirely?

Ping & DNS - updated with new look and Ping home screen widget

If you want the information only, it's best to provide an XML access to that.

If you want to steal content, why would we want to help you. Some of us provide or maintain systems with that content.
