This job requires creating scripts to gather data from the internet to be entered into a database. There are several pdf files available on the internet from different companies with information about products that I need in a database. 1. Write a script that automatically goes to particular web sites I will specify (a set of 10 companies), automatically downloads the pdf files, and automatically converts them to XML files. 2. Write an XSLT for each different XML file format in order to extract the required fields into a tab-delimited text file. There will be at least one XSLT for each company, as each company has a different file format, most with multiple products listed in each. One product should be listed on one line in the text file with the following fields (with specified field types): URL of pdf file Manufacturer Model Fan Type Width Height Thickness - - (Part #) (Axial, Blower, ..etc.) (mm) (mm) (mm) Maximum Airflow Maximum Pressure Noise Speed Rated Voltage Operating Voltage Rated Current Rated Power (CFM) (In Water) (dB-A) (R.P.M.) (VDC) (VDC) (Amp) (Watt) 3. Write a script to run the XSLT on the files in order to produce the text files. 4. Write a script to enter text files into a database. Once this project is complete, I have other related tasks for you I will post as new projects. When a job is completed well, I give very high ratings and am happy to provide more work for you.
The first deliverable I want is a fully functional set of scripts for a *single* web site. After I receive this and am able to run it, then I would like you to continue and create the XSLT files for the additional web sites and modify the script to support multiple web sites. 1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
