You can safely assume most websites will *not* give you access to their database and in general they usually don't like people using _their_ content either. (Never mind the legal issue here)
BUT, if you really want to *rip* content from a different site, you could do so withHttpUnit for instance. I've used it for moving legacy webpages and it works quite well if you know what kind of pattern you are looking for.
But perhaps it'd be best if you contact the "target" website first.

There are websites who offer their data over the web so that you can incorporate their data into your website, but I can't remember who. When you find them, they'll definitely be able to tell you how to do it as well. Actually a quick check in google found this:

You might try using HttpUnit to open a convesation with the web page, then look for the tags you're interested in. (If there isn't a published method for intefacing with your partners).
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
