using a small java program to download a web page

I would like to be able to provide a program a string representing a URL and have that program go out to the INTERNET, grab the specified file, and save it locally to my hard drive. I am sure this is not very complicated but I am not sure where to start. My Java book didn't really cover it. Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure if this will be what you want, because it's not using java. I would use wget.

wget -r websiteurl

see this for details

man wget

Start with the packages. There's sure to be a chapter in your 'book'.
