    Reading Data from a Web page

    Hi all,
    Not sure if this is the correct news group, but I thought I might see if
    someone may be able to help.
    I am trying to read data directly from a web page using java. The Client

    will not give access to their data base but will post data on their web
    page. Is there a way for me to be able to use java servlets to read data

    from a web page without connecting to the client database. I know that
    when making a servlet request this is usually to a server, which then
    can connect to a database using JDBC.
    How ever could it be possible to run request on a web page, (seems an
    strange questions!) but if the client will not let us access the data
    from a database then we can only use the web page.

    Any ideas or suggestions are welcome.
    Thanks
    Jawahar

    I'm not too familiar with Java Serverlets but if the clients were able to
    put the data into a text file and then put that text file on the server would
    your Java Serverlets be able to grab that data.

    Sorry I couldn't be more of a help, It was just a thought
