Generation Environment Tools - Part I

In this section and the following one, we explain the use of the Generation Environment tools through an example: creating a wrapper to access a webmail application and extract e-mail data.

The first part of the example (section Generation Environment Tools - Part I) provides the basic and common capacities of almost any Web wrapper, whereas the second (section Generation Environment Tools - Part II) focuses on more advanced topics that provide the tools with greater power and versatility.

The section Generating Navigation Sequences provides more detail about one of the crucial processes involved in creating wrappers: the graphical recording of navigation sequences.
