WebQL turns the Web into a giant database
Author: JT Smith
PC Magazine's Bill Machrone comments on WebQL: The idea is sheer simplicity: An interface that understands Web objects so that any site or group of sites can be queried like an SQL database. The implementation is a little harder, of course, which is why this product costs $499. But if you have data extraction or data analysis needs that go beyond the (usually lame) search or retrieval capabilities of most sites, this is the package you've been waiting for.
