Subject Re: Reading contents of a frameset
Date Fri, 09 May 2003 19:28:25 GMT

I think you may be misunderstanding what HttpClient does.  It it just a 
client for reading from / writing to an HTTP web server.  It only does 
HTTP.  Framesets are an HTML concept.  HTML is just one of the content 
types tranferred over HTTP.  The logic for handling HTML, or any other 
content type, is handled outside of HttpClient.

In this case I am guessing you are looking for an HTML parser that will 
interpret the frameset and download the referenced page.  The same would 
go for images, css, etc.

One class that might be of use for handling HTML is URI.  This could be 
useful in resolving URIs referenced in a page.  For example if you are 
reading HTML from http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/httpclient/ and you 
want to follow the link <a href="../../index.html"></a> you could use 
URI to resolve this to http://jakarta.apache.org/index.html.
