 package org.apache.commons.net.whois;
 
 
 import  org.apache.commons.net.finger.FingerClient;

The WhoisClient class implements the client side of the Internet Whois Protocol defined in RFC 954. To query a host you create a WhoisClient instance, connect to the host, query the host, and finally disconnect from the host. If the whois service you want to query is on a non-standard port, connect to the host at that port. Here's a sample use:
    WhoisClient whois;

    whois = new WhoisClient();

    try {
      whois.connect(WhoisClient.DEFAULT_HOST);
      System.out.println(whois.query("foobar"));
      whois.disconnect();
    } catch(IOException e) {
      System.err.println("Error I/O exception: " + e.getMessage());
      return;
    }
 

 
 
 public final class WhoisClient extends FingerClient
 {
    
The default whois host to query. It is set to whois.internic.net.
 
     public static final String DEFAULT_HOST = "whois.internic.net";

    
The default whois port. It is set to 43 according to RFC 954.
 
     public static final int DEFAULT_PORT = 43;


    
The default whois constructor. Initializes the default port to DEFAULT_PORT .
 
     public WhoisClient()
     {
         setDefaultPort();
     }

    
Queries the connected whois server for information regarding the given handle. It is up to the programmer to be familiar with the handle syntax of the whois server. You must first connect to a whois server before calling this method, and you should disconnect afterward.

Parameters:
handle The handle to lookup.
Returns:
The result of the whois query.
Throws:
IOException If an I/O error occurs during the operation.
 
     public String query(String handlethrows IOException
     {
         return query(falsehandle);
     }


    
Queries the connected whois server for information regarding the given handle and returns the InputStream of the network connection. It is up to the programmer to be familiar with the handle syntax of the whois server. You must first connect to a finger server before calling this method, and you should disconnect after finishing reading the stream.

Parameters:
handle The handle to lookup.
Returns:
The InputStream of the network connection of the whois query. Can be read to obtain whois results.
Throws:
IOException If an I/O error occurs during the operation.
    public InputStream getInputStream(String handlethrows IOException
    {
        return getInputStream(falsehandle);
