Here is the code which i compiled ...

import java.io.*;
import java.net.*;
public class SampleFiledownload
{
public static void main(String args[])
{


java.io.BufferedInputStream in = new java.io.BufferedInputStream(new


java.net.URL("url path").openStream());
java.io.FileOutputStream fos = new java.io.FileOutputStream("file name");
java.io.BufferedOutputStream bout = new BufferedOutputStream(fos,1024);
byte data[] = new byte[1024];
while(int count = in.read(data,0,1024) != null)
{
bout.write(data,0,count);
}
bout.close();
out.close();
in.close();
}
}

Its showing the following errors:

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0\bin>javac SampleFiledownload.java
SampleFiledownload.java:12: '.class' expected
while(int count = in.read(data,0,1024) != null)
^
SampleFiledownload.java:16: ')' expected
bout.close();
^
2 errors

You cannot declare a variable in a while condition, which you are attempting with the "int count" part. Change this to

int count;
while( (count = in.read(data,0,1024)) != -1)

instead. Notice the change from != null to != -1 also. The read method returns -1 at the end of the stream, not null.

Can anyone locate the error pls...
Code:

import java.io.*;
import java.net.*;
public class SampleFiledownload
{
public static void main(String args[])
{
int count;
java.io.BufferedInputStream in = new java.io.BufferedInputStream(new


java.net.URL("url path").openStream());
java.io.FileOutputStream fos = new java.io.FileOutputStream("file name");
java.io.BufferedOutputStream bout = new BufferedOutputStream(fos,1024);
byte data[] = new byte[1024];
while(count = (in.read(data,0,1024) != null))
{
bout.write(data,0,count);
}
bout.close();
//out.close();
in.close();
}
}

Compilation:

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0\bin>javac SampleFiledownload.java
SampleFiledownload.java:12: incomparable types: int and <nulltype>
while(count = (in.read(data,0,1024) != null))
^

while(count = (in.read(data,0,1024) != null))

I tried the code below with a pdf file which contains formulas and which is compiled from MikTex. It doesn't work in this case. A pdf file is saved, but; the only thing I can see is plus, minus, equal and similar signs; that is, no letters och digits. Do anyone of you know what could be wrong?

Thanks.

This earlier posts are close, but I needed to change a few things. Sometimes you don't get a full 1024 bytes. Here is the updated version:

import java.io.*;
import java.net.*;
public class SampleFile
{
public static void main(String args[]) throws IOException
{

java.io.BufferedInputStream in = new java.io.BufferedInputStream(new 

java.net.URL("http://bdonline.sqe.com/documents/testplans.pdf").openStream());
java.io.FileOutputStream fos = new java.io.FileOutputStream("testplans.pdf");
java.io.BufferedOutputStream bout = new BufferedOutputStream(fos,1024);
byte[] data = new byte[1024];
int x=0;
while((x=in.read(data,0,1024))>=0)
{
bout.write(data,0,x);
}
bout.close();
in.close();
}
}
