get and parse csv file in android


get and parse csv file in android  using -'android,parsing,csv'

I'm trying to get a csv file from http://download.finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=msft&f=sl1p2 then parse it so that I can get the price and the price changed into an object that sets both properties. Is there a way that I can do this with the android libraries?

Edit: Here's the current state of the union (not working):

HttpClient httpClient = new DefaultHttpClient();
        HttpContext localContext = new BasicHttpContext();
        HttpGet httpGet = new HttpGet(uri);
        HttpResponse response = httpClient.execute(httpGet, localContext);
        String result = "";

        BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(response.getEntity().getContent()));

        String line = null;
        while ((line = reader.readLine()) != null){
              result += line + "\n";
              String[] RowData = result.split("\n");
              String name = RowData[0];
              String price = RowData[1];
              String change = RowData[2];

              stock.setPrice(Double.parseDouble(price));
              stock.setTicker(name);
              stock.setChange(change);
            }
