Uses of URLConnection in java.net
 

Subclasses of URLConnection in java.net
 class HttpURLConnection
          A URLConnection with support for HTTP-specific features.
 class JarURLConnection
          A URL Connection to a Java ARchive (JAR) file or an entry in a JAR file.
 

Fields in java.net declared as URLConnection
protected  URLConnection JarURLConnection.jarFileURLConnection
          The connection to the JAR file URL, if the connection has been initiated.
 

Methods in java.net that return URLConnection
 URLConnection URL.openConnection()
          Returns a URLConnection object that represents a connection to the remote object referred to by the URL.
 URLConnection URL.openConnection(Proxy proxy)
          Same as openConnection(), except that the connection will be made through the specified proxy; Protocol handlers that do not support proxing will ignore the proxy parameter and make a normal connection.
protected abstract  URLConnection URLStreamHandler.openConnection(URL u)
          Opens a connection to the object referenced by the URL argument.
protected  URLConnection URLStreamHandler.openConnection(URL u, Proxy p)
          Same as openConnection(URL), except that the connection will be made through the specified proxy; Protocol handlers that do not support proxying will ignore the proxy parameter and make a normal connection.
 

Methods in java.net with parameters of type URLConnection
abstract  Object ContentHandler.getContent(URLConnection urlc)
          Given a URL connect stream positioned at the beginning of the representation of an object, this method reads that stream and creates an object from it.
 Object ContentHandler.getContent(URLConnection urlc, Class[] classes)
          Given a URL connect stream positioned at the beginning of the representation of an object, this method reads that stream and creates an object that matches one of the types specified.
abstract  CacheRequest ResponseCache.put(URI uri, URLConnection conn)
          The protocol handler calls this method after a resource has been retrieved, and the ResponseCache must decide whether or not to store the resource in its cache.
 

Uses of URLConnection in javax.net.ssl
