problem with connecting to photo sharing services.


my application requires me to upload a photo to photo sharing albums like Flickr by yahoo and picassa by google.

we can u the api's of the two , but the bottle neck when it come's to connecting to the services.

however , something similar to

URLConnection uc = new URL("http://api.flickr.com/services/rest/?method=flickr.photos.search&api_key=e3471e67d4ac10c64055420d9b2...).openConnection();

this class uses import java.net.*; package, which is not available with blackberry api's list.

so can you please post and alternative for the obove method , ie a way to connect to photo sharing services.
