  }

  /**
   * @param url
   * @param charset
   * @return return json string
   */
  public static String get(String url, String charset) {
    BufferedReader reader = null;
    String result = null;
    StringBuffer sbf = new StringBuffer();
    String userAgent = "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/29.0.1547.66 Safari/537.36";
    try {
      URL newUrl = new URL(url);
      HttpURLConnection connection = (HttpURLConnection)newUrl.openConnection();
      connection.setRequestMethod("GET");
      connection.setReadTimeout(30000);
      connection.setConnectTimeout(30000);
      connection.setRequestProperty("User-agent", userAgent);
      connection.connect();
      InputStream is = connection.getInputStream();
      reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(is, charset));
      String strRead = null;
      while ((strRead = reader.readLine()) != null) {
        sbf.append(strRead);
        sbf.append("\r\n");
      }
      reader.close();
      result = sbf.toString();
    } catch (Exception e) {
      e.printStackTrace();
