Connect to a Web site from the iSeries via HTTP

I am trying to pull a text file off a Web site to the iSeries. Is this possible? FTP is not an option.
In order to connect to a Web site from the iSeries via HTTP you can:
  • Write a small socket program that behaves like a browser.
  • Write http client program using JAVA
  • Buy "iSeries http client" such as GETURI from BVS Tools (it is considered shareware).
