ExactOne, Inc. enables real time searches of dynamic data residing throughout the Internet via its ExactOne Query Engine. The specialized Java application consists of a front-end Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) request server that deals directly with end users via browsers or online applications, and a back end query and parsing engine. Results of searches can be returned as a formatted HTML page or an XML data stream. Dynamic data, or information in Web pages and databases that changes frequently, has traditionally been difficult to mine. A typical use of ExactOne's technology would be a shopping bot that accepts the type of item and price range desired from a shopper's Web browser or cell phone, and returns a formatted page of links to matching items available in real time.
