    Hi, im wondering how i could connect my bukkit plugin to my website.
    i have a few things in mind, 1 check for updates, 2 get a motd, and 3 maybe even a auto update (however i think this is frowned upon now so maybe not).
    Could anyone point me in the right direction as to how to do that? Just the checking for update would be great!

    What I would do is a httpconnection to read a version.txt file.
    Get the version from the site www.example.com/mc-plugins/version.txt

    If that version is higher then the one you're using download the new plugin.
    You could do the same for motd.

    I just want to show people it's not that hard to find things out yourself.
    You'll learn much more from that then asking on a forum. I don't like spoon-feeding.
