Hi guys, im a bit new with web part of java, but i want to know if its possible to do something like this.
Everyday i recieve a different url, the url is a link and ends with a key and it authenticates me into my client web page and there are the 5 to 6 .rar files i have to donwload, but i have to keep clicking in each one everytime
so what i want to do is:
a program that asks me for the url
when i put the link it automatically downloads all the .rar files from the page.

Anyone can give me the start point?

Ideally when multiple files needs to be downloaded from site the provider will give restricted ftp access to the server.In that case we can use lot of tools or api to get those files to our location.But if we want to do the same via webpage by witting the Program based on HTTP API it will be error prone.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
