HTML Parsing in Java

0 votes

I was working on a Java project where I scrape the data from a website. In my project, I am trying to retrieve the data enclosed in the <div> tag using a particular CSS class. It will be really helpful if you can suggest me a few methods that can make my task easier like:

boolean usesClass(String CSSClassname);
String getText();
String getLink();

Well, to parse HTML I used JTidy. 

Basically, JTidy is a Java port of HTML Tidy, an HTML syntax checker, and pretty printer. Like its non-Java cousin, JTidy can be used as a tool for cleaning up malformed and faulty HTML. In addition, JTidy provides a DOM interface to the document that is being processed, which effectively makes you able to use JTidy as a DOM parser for real-world HTML.

JTidy was written by Andy Quick, who later stepped down from the maintainer position. Now JTidy is maintained by a group of volunteers.
