Hi all,

I am writing an application to extract event date, time and their descriptions from websites which do not give out feeds. can someone give some tips as to how this might be accomplished in java. are there web scraping applications which already have this functionality?

thanks in advance,

Pranav Modi.

I like the jWebUnit library for this kind of thing. It's meant as a testing tool, but works great for general-purpose programmatic web access.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
