    Question Pointer... in the right direction please

    Hi there, I want to create a program that will, when given a website, pull off the company name and address and logo to be fed into a database. Is this possible? (im sure it is.... but how to start)
    Any hints would be gratefully received.

    Sure it is possible.

    How will the website be "given"? Do you want to grab the page of the URL or just cut up the URL itself?

    Can you write a program in java? Are you familiar with the String class?

    Get your paper and pencil out, its brainstorm time. Get a rough (with details) idea of what you will to to achieve your goal down on paper and refine from there.

    Where to start? Decide how the URL will be given and design the input portion to handle that input first. Read file, user typed... what ever.
