tagbrowser – Technology agnostic browser component
This is a simple layer on top of apaches http components. Its interfaces resembles that of a web browser:
TagBrowser browser = new TagBrowser(); browser.open("https://github.com/joergviola/play-cms"); browser.clickName("About"); TagForm form = browser.getForm(1); form.setField("user", "test1"); form.setField("pwd", "test2"); form.submit("Register");
Besides being able to write simple scripts against web sites, these scripts are technology agnostic: Under the hood, the tagbrowser handles all the subtle details of state managements introduced by different technologies. PHP, Ruby, Java frameworks – they all handle state management slightly different.
By only offering the high-level interface, tagbrowser can do all cookie and URL handling and thus provide technology agnostic scripts.
