    "W4F is a toolkit for the generation of wrappers for Web sources.
    It consists of a retrieval language to identify Web sources, a declarative
    extraction language (HEL: HTML Extraction Language) to express robust
    extraction rules and a mapping interface to export the extracted
    information into some user-defined data-structures.
    To assist the user and make the creation of wrappers rapid and easy, the
    toolkit offers some wysiwyg support via some wizards.
    Together, they permit the fast and semi-automatic generation of ready-to-go
    The wrappers are generated as Java classes.
    W4F has been successfully used to generate wrappers for database systems
    and software agents, making the content of Web sources easily accessible to
    any kind of application. "

    This one seems useful for web mining projects.
