The code that I have recently implemented that it is generating this error for in my Android app is:

FileOutputStream fOut = null;
try {
fOut = this.openFileOutput("employeeInformation.xml", MODE_PRIVATE);
try {
InputStream is = new URL("http://totheriver.com/learn/xml/code/employees.xml").openStream();
int size = is.available();
byte[] buffer = new byte[size];
is.read(buffer);
is.close();
fOut.write(buffer);
} catch(Exception e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
} catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
} finally {
try {
fOut.close();
} catch (IOException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
}


Does anyone know what the problem is?

Answer

Add Internet permission to your manifest:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>
