Extracting Website Data on a Schedule

Scheduled web data extraction:
Extracting data from a website is a process by which a program automatically downloads the content of a page and parses it for specific information. In some cases you may want to do scheduled web data extracting. This is used in cases where you know that the data will change on a regular interval. For example: the current Libor rate or the Federal Prime Rate. You can schedule a web extractor tool to go out once a day to collect this information and then store it in a local database for later use.
