[java] Reading inputStream using BufferedReader.readLine() is too slow

I am using following code.

BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(conn.getInputStream()));
String line = null;

StringBuilder responseData = new StringBuilder();
while((line = in.readLine()) != null) {

But it is taking more than 12 sec to read 200 line.

Please help

The answer is

I strongly suspect that's because of the network connection or the web server you're talking to - it's not BufferedReader's fault. Try measuring this:

InputStream stream = conn.getInputStream();
byte[] buffer = new byte[1000];
// Start timing
while (stream.read(buffer) > 0)
// End timing

I think you'll find it's almost exactly the same time as when you're parsing the text.

Note that you should also give InputStreamReader an appropriate encoding - the platform default encoding is almost certainly not what you should be using.
