Reading webpages in Java applications

Many web application fall into the category of "mash ups", meaning that they collect information from different sources (often other web applications) and combine it in a single, coherent user interface that offers additional value to the user. Often this additional value is enough to justify the mash up as a service of its own. In order write such an application, one must first be able to access the web pages in question in the Java code of the own application.
