Overview   Project  


I'm finishing my Master's degree on database systems at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. I started writing this software as the final task of a course on semistructured data. As this software can be useful to others, I decided to make it public and put it online so that it can be useful to others as well.

Besides developing the xmlcrawler, I wrote a research paper (in portuguese) about it, which I intend to put online in the future. The bibliographical references I used in my research are shown bellow:
