Java: get page headers and then close connection

I would like to get only the page titles for the url without loading the page content. This is what I am currently using:

URL targetUrl = new URL( urlValue );
HttpURLConnection conn = (HttpURLConnection) targetUrl.openConnection();
String value = conn.getHeaderField(0);


I'm not sure if this will cause the headers to stop or do anything.

Submit your HEAD

request instead GET

(which is the default method).

// ...


Otherwise, the full response body is returned.
