Crawler-Lib Engine


The Crawler-Lib Engine is a general purpose workflow enabled task processor. It has evolved from a web crawler over data mining and information retrieval. It is throughput optimized and can perform thousands of tasks per second on standard hardware. Due to its workflow capabilities it allows to structure and parallelize even complex kind of work. Please visit the project page for the complete view of the Crawler-Lib Engine.

A license for the Anonymous Edition is included in the package. A license for the more powerful free Community Edition can be generated on the project page. A unrestricted license is available too.
