Jaunt Beta is a new, free, Java web-scraping/automation library. The API presents a lightweight, headless browser for interfacing with websites and web-apps. Jaunt makes it easy to parse, traverse, search, extract and filter HTML & XML data. It provides three levels of abstraction: DOM-level, component-level, and browser-level. It is an ideal API for web automation where Javascript is not required, including:
  • filling out and submitting forms
  • creating web-bots or web-scraping programs.
  • interfacing with REST APIs or web-apps.
  • automated testing.
