I have found better solutions to webcrawling program that I was having trouble with. If anyone needs to use some webcrawling functionality for some project they are undertaking then they can find open source code at:http://www.devarticles.com/c/a/Java/...Web-with-Java/ and http://www.javaworld.com/jw-11-1996/...ebcrawler.html. Even though the former has five or six bugs that need to be rectified frist and the latter should only be used with JDK 1.4.
