jsoup is a Java library for working with real-world HTML.

It provides a very convenient API for extracting and manipulating data, using the best of DOM, CSS, and jquery-like methods.

jsoup implements the WHATWG HTML5 specification, and parses HTML to the same DOM as modern browsers do.

scrape and parse HTML from a URL, file, or string

find and extract data, using DOM traversal or CSS selectors

manipulate the HTML elements, attributes, and text

clean user-submitted content against a safe white-list, to prevent XSS attacks

output tidy HTML

jsoup is designed to deal with all varieties of HTML found in the wild; from pristine and validating, to invalid tag-soup; jsoup will create a sensible parse tree.
