..I have an idea how to do it now but I can't seem to
figure out how to specify the web page with out getting "unreported
exception; must be caught or declared to
be thrown" error is a good group for beginners.

if i remove the URL line the program complies with out error

Or, if you accept either of the options specified.. (cont. *)

2) 'declared'

  public URL getURL(String path) throws MalformedURLException {
     // the code that calls for a new URL
     return new URL(path);

...but as soon as you go to call that method, you will end
with the same error from the code that *calls* it, which leads
to option ..1.
1) 'caught'

  public URL getURL(String path) {
    URL url = null;
    try {
       // the code that calls for a new URL
       url = new URL(path);
    } catch(MalformedURLException murle) { //exception caught!
    return url;

* ..the program will compile just fine (so long as
nothing else is wrong with the code).
