Scraping Process

What is the difference between webscraping and screenscraping?

Screen scrapping is used to get the text or a string or a word from the web application page or a desktop application page and it has no constrains like it can’t scrape on tabular data and of course it can and give us that tabular data with tab delimited data Ina tabular structure and one of the advantage it has is that it can take strings from three ways like Full text, Native text and OCR (image)

While web scrapping means Data scrapping that is it scrapes only structured data in tabular form either in web page or from a desktop application
And it can take tabular data only when the element is selectable

Hope this would help you
