HTTP requests inside the IDE

Hi ! is possible to execute an http request and getting the result inside the IDE (transparently for the user, I mean I don't want to open a browser window)?
Basically I want to get the result of some url (most of the times a local url), I can do it with pure Java but maybe the IDE has some utilities for this right now...

Regards !
Enrique.

Why not add a custom command, then run a shell script using curl or something.

sure, I can do it with pure Java, it's not so hard, but if the IDe has some code ready for this it would be good to reuse that I guess... anyway, I will reinvent the wheel one more time :p

Did you mean from a plugin you are writing?

My experience has been that each subsystem has its own way of making HTTP requests. Sometimes just URLConnection.
