The grab4j library enables your Java application to do some web-grabbing activities. With grab4j you can connect any remote HTML page and grab informations from its contents. The library can get the document and parse it, building a document object model representation, on which a grabbing script is run. You can grab anything you want in three steps:

  1. Write a grabbing script (don't panic, it's easy!).
  2. Call the WebGrabber.grab() method, supplying your script and the page address.
  3. Get the informations grabbed by your script.


grab4j requires a J2SE environment 1.4 or later.


grab4j is Free Software and it is licensed under LGPL (you will find a copy of the license bundled into the downloadable software distribution).
