I'm tring to develop an APP for Colombo Stock Exchange. But unfortunately CSE doesn't offer any API

But the details are available in the CSE website. Which is HTML. I hear using HTML parser i can get the or abstract the data and use it in my application. Can someone show me a good HTML parser and some basic tutorials.

Thanks in advance.

The XmlFaq links to several libraries that clean up HTML and transform it into XML, thus enabling the use of XML parsers and APIs. I'm not sure which ones run on Android.

Also make sure that what you're doing is legal. Content published on a web site is not generally free to use - the copyright remains with the publisher who may prohibit any or all derivative use.
