    Is there a better newsgroup to post questions about the java.net package? I
    have a simple program that uses the URLConnection class to access a specific
    web site and grab information off of it. But I want to do the same for a
    site that that requires me to log in first. What class(es) do i need to be
    using to access the URL, then have my program pass the id/pw and then access
    the content on the resulting page?

    Thanks!
