I have the URL for a site that will send a page. When I type the URL into a new browser and press enter, the page is sent.
I am trying to do this now with my java program.
I have done the following, but the page is not sent:
URL url = new URL("http://myurl");

URLConnection connection = url.openConnection();
connection.connect();
Does anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong?
THanks!

I presume this is not the entire program -- can you show us more, and tell us how it is not working properly?

I guess that's part of my question.
There is currently an existing site that will send a page message. I have the URL for this site. When I type this URL into a browser, a page is sent to my pager.
I would like to replicate this and have my code connect to this same URL so that the page will be sent to my pager.
I thought all I needed to do was to use the URLConnection class to connect to the URL. I don't need to read anything from the site. Is there something else that I should be doing besides just connecting to that site?

Also, I guess I forgot to mention that I know the connection is successful.
I am getting a responseCode of 200, which I believe means that the Connection succeeded.

I don't see any place where you're actually reading the content of the page. (And doesn't this program receive a web page, not send one?)
