Sorry if I had posted this in the wrong forum.

I have a webpage with links in a table. All i need to do is to navigate to each of these links and gather information from those pages.

As of now i can think of writing web crawler in java (again this has to be supported by the site)

Any other solutions like collecting the webpage response and HTML parsing the same.

Please suggest

The HttpUnit library (or jWebUnit, which builds on top of it) is perfect for that.
