Getting Text and Images from The Web with Java

I used this code to get images and text from the web. First an image:

    public static BufferedImage getImage(String urlString)throws Exception {
        // construct URL
        URL url = new URL(urlString);
        // get AWT image
        Image image = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getImage(url);
        // cast to BufferedImage
        return ImageUtils.toBufferedImage(image);

Now to return all text as a String:

    public static String getText(String urlString) throws Exception {
        // construct url
        URL url = new URL(urlString);
        // create input buffer for reading
        BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(url
        // temp string
        String str;
        // create buffer to put information in
        StringBuffer buffer = new StringBuffer();
        // read until end of file
        while ((str = in.readLine()) != null) {
            // since reading line add line feed.
        // close buffer
        // return as string
        return buffer.toString();
