Web Bot Programming?

0 Nathan Lile · June 5, 2014
I am fairly good with Java, I've listened to some of the Java tutorials here and had some undergrad Java programming classes. However, I still haven't learned how to interact with the web. Maybe I've just missed something really obvious on here, but are there any tutorials on web bots?

My real goal is to create a bot that searches an online library catalog for a keyword, then scrapes all the results, and then searches the scraped results for more specific keywords they might not have been listed for. I'm also really interested in learning how to automatically fill out forms online with a collection of data.
