Let's move this topic to a more appropriate forum -- as this doesn't really have to do with BEA/Weblogic.

This is the command to pass credentials via curl:
curl -u username:password http://website.com

Then you can grep to search the resulting text if you want to search for something on the webpage. For searching the full website, you'd use a search feature of that website, no?

can you send more specific curl command to search on the website.
e.g.- suppose to login in the forum website and search some keyword(e.g. - linux is entered as search text and submit the page for search)

curl isn't the right tool for that. You'd be better off with a testing tool like Selenium.

Also, be careful what you do with the result. Some sites don't like you scraping content.

Thanks for quick response. I understand the Selenium can be used for building test script. Can you tell how can we record the transaction of website.
e.g. login to the website and perform the search operation and keep the transaction record of all the activity performed on the website.

How to record the transactions? If it were me doing the design, I'd write the record to a file, most likely. You might use a logging package if the data you wanted to record was compatible with logging, that would save you replicating the logic required for logging.

Thank for reply. My query is not to perform transaction record using the logging. I am more focused about how can we do track the transaction record as I said in example which should be catered using curl command is it possible to use curl command tool? or any tool that can cater to perform the transaction recording?
