Java Question

Android - .getInputStream() keeps on crashing

I'm really new to Android, java and HTML. So I'm pretty much stuffed.
I'm just trying to get data from a URL with an android application.
I tried the following code in java and it works fine, so I really stuck with what is wrong with it.
I tried googling and used different options, such as setting connection time

URL url = new URL("http://www.google.com/");
HttpURLConnection conn = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
conn.setDoInput(true);
conn.setDoOutput(true);
try {
input = new InputStreamReader(conn.getInputStream());
in =new BufferedReader(input);
}


I tried a lot of different versions, such as adding a bunch of stuff like:
urlConnection.setRequestProperty("Connection", "keep-alive");
urlConnection.setRequestProperty("ConnectionTimeout", "12000");
urlConnection.setRequestProperty("Content-Length", "" + request.length);

I think the following post has a similar problem:
IOException with URLConnection and getInputStream

I didn't get an IOException (well at least I don't think so), but I got this (and a whole bunch of others)

07-01 23:18:33.870: E/AndroidRuntime(30713): java.lang.IllegalStateException: Could not execute method of the activity

And yes, I did add the permission to INTERNET and ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE

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


I'm using Eclipse and running on my Android HTC One X.
Please help. Thanks in advance!

Here's the stack trace after I added the AsyncTask:

and this is AsyncTank...

protected String doInBackground(String... arg0) {

try {
URL url = new URL("http://www.google.com/");
HttpURLConnection conn = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
conn.setDoInput(true);
conn.setDoOutput(true);
input = new InputStreamReader(conn.getInputStream());
in =new BufferedReader(input);
System.out.println("HELLO");
} catch (MalformedURLException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
} catch (IOException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
finally {
conn.disconnect();
}
return null;
}

That AsyncTask you posted makes the problem obvious. Commenting out 153 is just hiding the bug.

You're declaring and assigning conn inside the try block (HttpURLConnection conn = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();), and disconnecting in your finally.

But that conn you've connected to is not visible from the finally block. That means you probably have a member variable with the same name. You're trying to disconnect that instead.

You're getting a NullPointerException because the member is null.

To start with, I'd suggest changing conn to something else like conn2 to make the problem more obvious (you'll get a compile error on line 153).

The correct solution is to move the declaration and assignment of conn outside the try block so that it is visible to the finally block, and rejig your catch blocks as appropriate. Something like (I haven't tested this):

protected String doInBackground(String... arg0) {

    try {
        URL url = new URL("http://www.google.com/");
        HttpURLConnection conn = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
        try {
            conn.setDoInput(true);
            conn.setDoOutput(true);
            input = new InputStreamReader(conn.getInputStream());
            in =new BufferedReader(input);
            System.out.println("HELLO");
        }
        finally {
            conn.disconnect();
        }
    } catch (MalformedURLException e) {
        e.printStackTrace();
    } catch (IOException e) {
        e.printStackTrace();
    }

    return null;
}
