Screen Scraping


Screen scraping is a technique used to interface (or link together) one system with another, by means of emulating User (screen) interaction. Screen scraping 'maps' the location of the various screens and the input boxes (fields) for the information. Screen scraping will then emulate the input of an (electronic) User using the system at a terminal. This technique is not the preferred means of interfacing systems as it is slow and rather crude. However, it remains a viable means where other interfaces options are not easy or viable.
