I already have a travel website running booking engine for flight booking.
For some of the Airlines whose content is not available over API, we need to scrap the information starting from the search process till the booking completion including submitting the payment details.
Based on the search Criteria received from the Search box of our website, the same parameters need to be used to make a search
Information display to customers
Selecta specific fare/flights
Get the fare breakup/additional information
Send booking Request including payment.
The scrapped content has to be absorbed by our Java/J2EE based application which can take feed as XML/JSON/WS etc.
Performance i.e. time taken to complete the exercise is more important than just doing it.
Need to see something already working of similar nature
Can agree on a Proof of Concept first
Have continued work of such nature
