Having a program use a search engine...

I'm working on a project that will work with lots(hundreds, maybe thousands) of objects of the same type (but different content).
The objects contain information that can easily be put in manually via GUI, but considering the number of items, it would be very helpful to have the program put them in by itself.
All the items that I want in the program can be found on this website www.wowhead.com
So what I want, is have the program search that website for all objects of a certain type, and then put them in a file.
The trouble is that I've barely ever touched html within java, I dont know much about website structures in general, and I really dont know how to do this.
Can anyone give me an idea what to do, once I've sent the program off to the website? Are there any tutorials or something that I can learn from? I didn't find anything helpful when I googled on it

Start with some basic Java tutorials.
