Absolutely. Java is my Golden Hammer (along with XML).

Our group developed Java tools to scrape the scientific literature from
publisher web pages ("pubcrawler"). It's very powerful and - because it's
specifically designed for scholarly pubs - probably a better starting point
than Scraperwiki. If I can use pubcrawler and its routines from bibserver
then I think we could answer some of the wishes on open-access for malaria
