I am attempting to retrieve a file from a URL connection. I've looked at all of the examples on the 'Net and have copied some in, but I simply can't figure out why I'm getting a "unknownhostexception" when running this code. I've tried multiple URL's - java.com, www.oracle.com, and the one in the example below, and they all return the unknownhostexception when doing the getInputStream function. Can someone please help me? I get this error right after the message indicated by #0 below appears.
