I haven't ever messed with any webpages through java and I'm kind of curious as to how it would work. I have a specific question that perhaps someone will be able to answer.
How would one go about pulling certain information from a forum? To better understand what I am asking, I'll give an example:
Lets say I am surfing this forum and am currently at:
Then I click view source, this gives me the source of the current page opened.
Now lets say I want to pull out every title in there. Ex. title=""
After pulling out each title I would want to add it to a text file or something of the sort so I can refer to it later. For the mean time I would probably add it to an arraylist of some sort because the next thing I would want it to do is click next page and do it to the following page.
Can anyone shed some light on how to do such a thing? Or perhaps let me know what I need to read up on to get where I'm wanting to go.
