I wanted to know :

1. Does htmlunit uses httpurlconnection internally?
2. If not which one is more faster in terms of establishing a connection,scraping data from websites, filling out forms etc..
3. Are there any better things performance wise like socket programming for above mentioned tasks?

I want to learn all this things.. but i am super confused on what to learn.I played with selenuim + java bindings, but they are super slow.Now i am learning htmlunit.
Do you know any better solution for doing the above mentioned tasks?
