Hi
I want to read a web page and access its DOM tree for processing. Is there any suggested way of doing this on an android based device? I need to extract a few fields from a table, and I don't want to parse the HTML myself since it's not well-formed.

The page itself should never be visible to the user, I'm just interested in the parser. Surely there must be a few which some of you have used.

Java libraries isn't really my field so any suggestion is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Here is a sweet collection of Java HTML parser libraries http://java-source.net/open-source/html-parsers[^].

I'd go with Java Mozilla Html Parser[^] or HotSax[^] depending on the exact requirements.

Cheers!
