JWPL 0.9.2

Java interface that will help you access Wikipedia information
JWPL (Java Wikipedia Library) is a free, Java-based and open-source application programming interface that allows you to access all information in Wikipedia.

Is JWPL for you? JWPL is for you if you need structured access to Wikipedia in Java.

Furthermore, JWPL is not for you if you need to query live data. JWPL works on an optimized database, i.e. you are querying a static Wikipedia dump. This gives much better performance and lightens the load on the Wikipedia servers.

Detailed instructions on how to install and use the JWPL utility on your Mac are available HERE.

JWPL is a cross-platform utility capable of running on any operating system that comes with Java support (e.g. Mac OS X, Windows, Linux).

Main features:

  • Fast and efficient access to Wikipedia
  • Parser for the MediaWiki syntax
  • Language independent
