Hallo,

I am rather new to Macs and want to start programming with xcode. I have some experience with Java. I have signed up at ADC and looked up a few things like how to get the content of a textfield for example. I have found that out by now but I can't find it anywhere on the ADC-Site.

I am now trying to connect to a HTTP-Server. I can find on the site, how to create a CFHTTPRequest but that does not help me at all. There are no examples and nothing that actually helps me to get something from a HTTP-Server.

Now someone please tell me where I look such things up on the ADC-Site. I can't believe that it is not there. This is Apple after all and I have (except for this) only had good experiences with Apple. Please don't tell me how I use HTTP, but where I find it on the ADC-Site. Thanks in advance!

I just used the search box on ADC and found this.

None of these 45 hits have the answer to your question?

For Java just google 'classname +java'

(e.g. String +java for the String class)

for Objective C go to help==>Documentation in Xcode.
