Sun XML Lib

Hi All,

I guess some one can solve my problem

If the Xml File is in the local directory to parse it we will write 
something like this (Given in SunXML lib examples)
String uri = "file:" + new File (argv [0]).getAbsolutePath ();
// turn it into an in-memory object
XmlDocument doc = XmlDocumentBuilder.createXmlDocument(uri);
Element root = doc.getDocumentElement();

Now I want to do the same thing but I have the file at a specific URL.
I have tried
URL url = new URL(argv[0]);
//where for e.g. argv[0] = ""

InputStream in = url.openStream();
XmlDocument doc = XmlDocumentBuilder.createXmlDocument(in);

But it does not work.

Does anybody has a solution for this??
