Can anyone tell me why I get a MalformedURLException -- see line 05 below -- when I run this code? I am using JDK 1.3. (I know it's ancient; using a newer jdk is not an option.)

java.net.MalformedURLException: no protocol: http%3A%2F%2Fdevelopers.sun.com%2Frss%2Fsdn_features.xml

Costs matter. Justice lies in processes not outcomes. Crime is caused by criminals.

You shouldn't encode the URL before creating the URL instance.
