Web Automation

Hi, I read somewhere that ITPilot is now depecated in major versions after v8. Is there a roadmap for what's next in terms of Web Automation / Extract capability within Denodo? Thanks, Kyle.

Hello Kyle Denodo ITPilot is still inlcuded in DEnodo 8, but it is considered deprecated. This means it does recevie maintenance, but not new enhancements. We have not yet decided if it will keep that status in Denodo 9, or if it will be removed from the distribution. Nowadays most applications and websites offer some form of API, therefore the importance of web automation and web extraction for data integration has faded Regarding alternatives: * For web automation, technoligies like Selenium offer a solid alternative for web automation (https://www.selenium.dev/documentation/en/). Since it offers a Java API, the logic can be easily embedded in a Denodo custom wrapper * For PDF extraction, tools like Tabula (https://tabula.technology/) are easy-to-use alternatives to extract the content from tables embedded in PDF files. It also offers a Java API for integration in a custom wrapper (https://github.com/tabulapdf/tabula-java/) Regards
