HTTP Recipes for Java Bots Feb. 21 2008
By Peter V. Kasson - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is quite a complete book for anyone wishing to write bots in any language (if he knows Java well enough to understand the examples). It covers protocol, parsing and techniques of writing them along with good practices.

It offers a good introduction/foundation for beginners to intermediate developers. The chapter on HTTPS goes into good detail of the nuances of secure and non-secure interactions of HTTP communications.

Extracting data from the web is covered extensibly in various examples with well described reasons and approaches to technique and purpose. The examples are easy to understand and read.

For anyone wishing to start writing applications that automate web interactions, data retrieval or creating and automating bots, this is a good book for the job.
