    problem with reading from a website

    i have created a program that will read the source from a website and then do other things. however i cannot get my program to read from the website that i want to work with. all it returns is null, over and over.

    here is the part of code that i guess reads from the website.

    Code:
    if(buttonObj == searchButton)
    {			
    	try
    	{
    		String name = nameField.getText();
    		URL url = new URL("http://www.kingsofchaos.com/battlefield.php?jump=&search_type=s&search=" + name);
    		URLConnection connection = url.openConnection();
    		BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(url.openStream()));
    				
    		// this isnt in my actual program but is just to show the output                		
                    for(int i = 0; i < 20; i++)
    		{
                            line = in.readLine();
    			System.out.println(line);
    		}						
    	}
    	catch(Exception e)
    	{
    		System.out.print(e);
    	}
    }
    when i change the url to:
    Code:
    URL url = new URL("http://www.yahoo.com");
    i get the actual source code which is what i want.

    Your browser is probably saying this (on the javaconsole) :
    java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.net.SocketPermission www.db.no:80 connect,resolve)
    eschew obfuscation

    I checked the header and your status message is ok (200). I wonder if it has anything to do with the page being a php file? It shouldn't though.
