Caesius WebQL
by Rick Smith (December 7, 2000)


The Internet is resource that contains a vast amount of information. While finding a single piece of information can be easy, tracking on-line information for competitive analyses or market research over time is considerably more difficult. Caesius Software has created WebQL, a query language that accesses one or more web sites and extracts relevant and detailed information from them.

Using the WebQL software tool, small to mid-sized businesses can explore new markets on-line by generating marketing contact lists and tracking on-line competitors. Construction of these searches can be by either IT personnel or an individual. A large development staff is no longer needed for marketing or product planning projects, but projects can still be completed on a timely basis.

To use WebQL most effectively, it helps if you have a good understanding of HTML and the regular expression (regex) syntax. If you donít happen to possess this knowledge, Caesius has provided the WebQL Query Wizard, which guides you step by step through the process of building a query. While useful queries can be as short as three lines of code, an on-line script repository is available on-line a source for more queries. If you still have trouble, Caesius can create the script for you, on an hourly pay basis.

Caesius WebQL also:

  • displays query results in real-time which helps to insure that the query is functioning properly.

  • makes building a manual query easier by display functions and their parameters on screen, so you donít have to memorize the WebQL syntax

  • uses and embedded Web browser that displays responses to your query.

  • logs all status and error messages

  • can be used for unlimited queries (one at a time). If multiple queries need to be run simultaneously, several WebQL engines can be licensed and run.

  • uses MySQL software during run-time for storage. This lets you resume a long query where you left off if the power or the network connection is disrupted.
