I need to run a javascript page from my app and receive the page that results from the script on a String. This is my code:

However this only results in stuff like sun.net.www.protocol.http.HttpURLConnection$HttpInputStream@1ce669e,sun.net.www.protocol.http.HttpURLConnection etc..
I also tried



This gives me the pure HTML code.

It's the browser (read: client) that interprets the JavaScript. Your code would need to take over that role after it's read the pure HTML code. That's not a trivial task. Perhaps a third party library like Lobo can help you.
