Description#

This plugin allows you to insert the contents of an external web page into a JSPWiki page.

Features#

The plugin uses HTTP 1.1 and supports a proxy server.

It supports X509 server certificates and client authentication.

It is possible to include only a part of the page and to replace or remove parts of it.

The plugin has a follow-links feature. This allows that all internal links from the page included will also be shown in the JSPWiki page when selected by the user. Even form answers from POST and GET requests will be shown inside the JSPWiki page!

With the help of the depth parameter you can specify how many link layers from the include page should be available and shown inside the JSPWiki page.

More Information and Download#

Detailed installation and usage instructions can be found on DataCore's Open Source Webserver http://open.datacore.ch/ in the JSPWiki InsertPagePlugin section. If you're interested in more, you can find other JSPWiki plugins on the JSPWiki page.

Discussion/Comments#

I'll have to try this when I get a chance, looks like ti could be useful. Especially to tie a wiki tighter to an intranet. Sort of woudl let the wiki be "portal-like". Maybe a better name would be something like HtmlScraperPlugin or something? ExtendedInsertPagePlugin is a bit unwieldy, and InsertPage is only for within one's own wiki. This is fundamentally different, so I'd reccomend a name change. Cool plugin. --JohnV
