    correct answer is below:
    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2...-from-bing-api

      public static void main(String[] args) {
               String searchText = "searchtext";
               searchText = searchText.replaceAll(" ", "%20");
               String accountKey="key-ID";
     
            byte[] accountKeyBytes = Base64.encodeBase64((accountKey + ":" + accountKey).getBytes());
            String accountKeyEnc = new String(accountKeyBytes);
            URL url;
            try {
                url = new URL(
                        "https://api.datamarket.azure.com/Bing/Search/v1/Composite?Sources=%27Web%27&Query=%27" + searchText + "%27&$format=JSON");
            HttpURLConnection conn = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
            conn.setRequestMethod("GET");
            conn.setRequestProperty("Authorization", "Basic " + accountKeyEnc);
     
            BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(
                    (conn.getInputStream())));
            StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
            String output;
            System.out.println("Output from Server .... \n");
            //write json to string sb
            while ((output = br.readLine()) != null) {
     
                sb.append(output);
     
            }
     
            conn.disconnect();
             //find webtotal among output      
           int find= sb.indexOf("\"WebTotal\":\"");
           int startindex = find + 12;
     
     
           int lastindex = sb.indexOf("\",\"WebOffset\"");
     
            System.out.println(sb.substring(startindex,lastindex));
     
            } catch (MalformedURLException e1) {
                e1.printStackTrace();
            } catch (IOException e) {
     
                e.printStackTrace();
            }
     
     
        }

    Do you get any errors? Please copy the full text of the error message and paste it here.

    Is there a forum for the bing api? I have never seen any bing packages.

    Sorry, I know nothing about the bing api. Maybe someone else here knows of it.
    If you have a java programming problem post it here.
    If you are having problems with someone else's code, ask the author of that code about the problem.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
