Just some info:

* screenscraping of HTML weather reports using JTidy -> XHTML -> XML -> any
device/format markup language (piece of cake, really, they couldn't believe
screenshaping could be implemented so fast)

* we implemented a generator which retrieves the same kind of data from an ASCII feed
and brings it into a Cocoon pipeline

* an application that translates this data, XML-ized after pipelining it through
Cocoon, into a WebServices interface (SOAP & WSDL), using Apache SOAP

what they built was a VB.Net app running on an iPac (pretty cool also) that consumed
the WebService across a wireless TCP/IP connection and showed the current & future
weather
