I need a program that will take the name of a hotel and find out its cost from the site I specify by screen scraping the results.
The hotel maybe found on the first page of the results returned by the site or on later pages. The program should be able to retrieve the rate in any case.
The site takes hotels based on location and lists all the hotels in that location. Hence the program should be able to send the location of the hotel ( this I will give) and screen scrape and post the results into a SQL 2000 database.
This program will be run on a scheduled basis and hence needs a simple scheduler.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) Exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site).
Database used is SQL 2000 or MS-SQL. IIS.
