JHwis is a framework for automatical access to web servers.

We enable non-simple downloads from (and also uploads to) web-servers through JHwis.

Occasionally you have to log in to a portal and click through several links in order to get to your data. This may bore you or your boss may find your time too valuable to do that kind of stupid things. JHwis can do to that kind of things for you.

From what you already read above you understand, that JHwis is also very well suited to implement web harvesting, according to the English wikipedia a focused form of a web crawler search.

JHwis is implemented in perl, and it is meant to run e.g. within downloading batch environments such as our x_spooling.
