ASP Screen Scraping is any project that collects data from websites on the internet using ASP.NET programming. This is generally complicated and requires technical training. Mozenda makes this process easy by allowing users to specify the data they want with point-and-click gestures.
Mozenda is a tool designed to help those who are used to writing their own screen scraping scripts in ASP, PHP, Ruby, etc. do so more quickly and effectively. The Web Agent Builder software allows developers to create agents with only a few mouse clicks that would otherwise requires significant development time. The software even includes handy tools such as a regular expression generator and the ability to use and edit xpath expressions to ensure that you’re getting the data that you need.
The Mozenda Advantage
Mozenda also makes it easy to use the data you’ve extracted in your website or web app. We have a robust REST API that allows you to do everything from running an agent to getting back parameterized results from data you’ve already scraped all through simple web calls. The data is all returned as XML which means it can be easily parsed by PHP or ASP and used in a webpage of your own.
Take a look at how easy it is to build agents with Mozenda by viewing some of our video examples.
