How can I do it with OkHttp?

You need learn okhttp @Nisarga_Adhikary :sweat_smile:

Dont worry i make simple extension code to learn together :slight_smile:

SimpleOkHttp link repo

im write use browser chrome android not an idea,so maybe need fix :sweat_smile:
and maybe need add library "okhttp.jar" is com.squareup.okhttp3 library.



Actually, it's easy. Still, I recommend you to look at what @Taifun said.

Here is the code which I use. With simple explanation:

            description = "Website source-code")
    public void WebsiteContent(final String website) {
        AsynchUtil.runAsynchronously(new Runnable() { // Always do get request Asynchronously
            public void run() {
                try {
                    BufferedReader readStream = new BufferedReader(
                            new InputStreamReader(
                                    new URL(website).openStream())); // Open stream and read the content from streamReader to BufferedReader
                    String readLine; // Variable which will have one line of data
                    StringBuilder data = new StringBuilder(); // The result data will be stored here
                    while ((readLine = readStream.readLine()) != null) data.append(readLine); // Read all the lines from the readStream
                    readStream.close(); // IMPORTANT close the stream

                    final String finalData = data.toString(); // Make the string final with the data variable
                    activity.runOnUiThread(new Runnable() { // Always raise events on UI thread
                        public void run() {
                            myEvent(finalData); // You're event with data
                } catch (IOException e) {
                    e.printStackTrace(); // Error occured

what packages should i import?

Import these classes

Although @Kumaraswamy 's approach is good but it will only work for GET requests.
But if you are looking for other options then you should do this instead:

      URL obj = new URL("");
      HttpURLConnection httpConnection = (HttpURLConnection)obj.openConnection();
      httpConnection.setDoOutput(true); //if you want output
      httpConnection.setRequestMethod("POST"); //request method
      BufferedReader bufferedReader = null;
      if (httpConnection.getResponseCode() == 200) {
        bufferedReader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(httpConnection.getInputStream()));
      } else {
        bufferedReader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(httpConnection.getErrorStream()));
      StringBuilder content = new StringBuilder();
      String line;
      while ((line = bufferedReader.readLine()) != null){
      final String con = String.valueOf(content); //post wherever you need

Yes :slightly_smiling_face:

Btw what is difference between URLConnection and HttpURLConnection :thinking: :thinking:

HttpUrlConnection is a child and abstract class which extends UrlConnection and is more secure.
If you want more security then use HttpsUrlConnection.


Will HttpURLConnection work with those urls whoch has scheme https

But HttpsUrlConnection will not work with http urls.

When you open a URL for connection, Java will internally instantiate the right class for the scheme. You can downcast the URLConnection object to the more concrete type appropriate for the scheme, but it isn't necessary unless you need protocol specific functionality (e.g., setting HTTP headers).
