    Default Facebook Crowler

    hi everyone,

    I'm trying to program a facebook crowler for generate a friend graph and stuff like that.
    the idea is:
    1. get to the login page "www.facebook.com"
    2. enter my username & password
    3. get my home page
    4. start process the data

    i read a lot in the web and i still cannot decide in which technology i have to choose:

    1. i tried to work with HTTPRequest class
    2. i tried to work with the SWT and to open a browser
    3. i tried to read some about the FB API's in their forum but i didn't find something interesting.

    i will be very happy if someone could help me to pass the 3 first missions. i stuck with that...
    is there any example of posting such params and retrieving a new page?
