Hi Everyone, I have been reading Head First Java and almost about to finish the book(I'm planning to read "Effective Java" after finishing the HFJ). I know that I'm still lacking in experience, that is why I decided to apply for a job.

they have given me a test and ask if I could create a small java program that will do the following
-harvest the information in a website.
-login to the website and
-do transaction in the website.

I have been reading the htmlunit api for week and searching in google for the topics. I have been banging my head in front of my pc but I still can't connect to their given website. I need to setup my program that will use a proxy because the site is not available in my country. I still need to learn alot and wanted to try if I could create their requested program.

Can anyone suggest a book that has a thorough explanation about screen scrapping? any comment or suggestion is highly appreciated. Thanks!
