package com.bethecoder.tutorials.imageio;

import java.awt.BorderLayout;
import java.awt.image.BufferedImage;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.net.URL;

import javax.imageio.ImageIO;
import javax.swing.ImageIcon;
import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.JLabel;

public class LoadImageFromUrlTest {

  /**
   @param args
   @throws IOException 
   */
  public static void main(String[] argsthrows IOException {

    URL url = new URL("http://www.google.com/logos/2008/stpatricks_08.gif");
    BufferedImage bufImage = ImageIO.read(url);

    JFrame frame = new JFrame("Image loaded from URL");
    JLabel label = new JLabel(new ImageIcon(bufImage));
    frame.getContentPane().add(label, BorderLayout.CENTER);
    frame.pack();
    frame.setVisible(true);
  }

}
   

It gives the following output,
