    I'm not sure if you're asking about using Strings in Java (refer to the String API) or if you're focused on web page scraping. If the latter, I recommend you search "java web page scraper" and read those results for info. Come back when you need more help.

    At least in two major ways:
    a) With a good use of regular expressions, thus directly manipulating strings.
    b) With a specialized library like jsoup (or others).
