How to grab HTML page and parse content to dig infomation you need ... in your xPages application ... in serverside using ’JQuery way’ ...
David Marko 12 March 2013 07:00:00Have you ever known that jQuery has a server side alternative? What ... server side, I can hear ? What is this good for? So have you ever request to grab data from web page, that is not JSON or any data orientated? I mean simple web page from which you need to grab some information and store it into your Lotus Notes database? If so and if you can code in JAVA ... the Jerry is your friend :-)
Jerry is JAVA library that mimics the JQuery API for accessing the HTML tags and attributes. Just imagine jQuery selector $("div#jodd p.neat").css("color", "red") but server side in your JAVA code. If you are interested in such things, the following URL http://jodd.org/doc/jerry/index.html and screen can be a good starter for you.
