Apache Commons IO is a java library with simple IO utilities and filters. This requires the library commons-io-2.1.jar to be in classpath. The following example shows using IOUtils.toString() API.

File Name  :  
com/bethecoder/tutorials/commons_io/tests/URLToString.java 
Author  :  Sudhakar KV
Email  :  kvenkatasudhakar@gmail.com
   
package com.bethecoder.tutorials.commons_io.tests;

import java.io.IOException;
import java.net.URL;

import org.apache.commons.io.IOUtils;

public class URLToString {

  /**
   @param args
   @throws IOException 
   */
  public static void main(String[] argsthrows IOException {
    URL url = new URL("http://finance.google.com/finance/info?client=ig&q=NASDAQ:MSFT");
    String content = IOUtils.toString(url);
    System.out.println(content);
  }
}
   

It gives the following output,
// [

"id": "358464"
,"t" : "MSFT"
,"e" : "NASDAQ"
,"l" : "24.79"
