  Description     : HTML5 parsing algorithm in Java

 The Validator.nu HTML Parser is an implementation of the HTML5 parsing
 algorithm in Java for applications. The parser is designed to work as a
 drop-in replacement for the XML parser in applications that already support
 XHTML 1.x content with an XML parser and use SAX, DOM or XOM to interface
 with the parser.

$ aptitude show libhtmlparser-java
Package: libhtmlparser-java              
State: not installed
Version: 1.6.20060610.dfsg0-3
Priority: optional
Section: java
Maintainer: Tiago Saboga <tiagosaboga@gmail.com>
Architecture: all
Uncompressed Size: 340 k
Depends: java-gcj-compat | java2-runtime
Suggests: libhtmlparser-java-doc
Description: java library to parse html
 HTML Parser is a Java library used to parse HTML in either a linear or nested fashion.
 Primarily used for transformation or extraction, it features filters, visitors, custom tags
 and easy to use JavaBeans. 
 
 The two fundamental use-cases that are handled by the parser are extraction and
 transformation (the syntheses use-case, where HTML pages are created from scratch, is better
 handled by other tools closer to the source of data). 
 
 In general, to use the HTMLParser you will need to be able to write code in the Java
 programming language. Although some example programs are provided that may be useful as they
 stand, it's more than likely you will need (or want) to create your own programs or modify
 the ones provided to match your intended application.

Hi Geert,

I'm aware of this package, but unfortunately it's not the same. The one
I'm proposing is the Validator.nu HTML parser, as used by Netbeans. It's
probably infeasible to patch Netbeans to use the sourceforge one, and it
would certainly be a lot of work in comparison to packaging the correct
dependency.

Thanks,
Andy

Okay, thanks for telling that http://about.validator.nu/htmlparser/
is another Java HTML-parser as in package 'libhtmlparser-java'.

The ITP at http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=723028
has now also this information.


And about the request for sponsoring:
When packaging is done,
add information to the ITP where the Debian files are.
