i am trying to get the data from a restful webservice which is running using a java client program.

Hello Saipraneeth,

You can use this tiny program I created here: http://ta.cnci.org/more-about-java/29-java-servers-and-services/232-remoteservice-a-simple-client-to-test-your-restful-and-soap-services
if you are accessing a BASIC authentication type. Different authentication will required different headers setting.

Good luck,
T.A.
