• No More Screen Scraping!

    WhosHurt.com is making our injury database available via a SOAP interface! That means that you can put our injury report on your website very easily.pro will be offering its NFL stats service via SOAP interface!

    What is screen-scraping? Screen scraping is a technique of obtaining data off of a computer screen. There are plenty of good websites out there that have a lot of good information about football. While these web pages are really good for people to look at, it can be difficult to save the data to a file because the formatting (HTML) really gets in the way.

    From Wikipedia "Screen scraping is generally considered an ad hoc, inelegant technique, often used only as a "last resort" when no other mechanism is available. Aside from the higher programming and processing overhead, output displays intended for human consumption often change structure frequently. Humans can cope with this easily, but computer programs will often crash or produce incorrect results."
    Over the off-season we will enhance this section of footballbook.pro to make a place with everything you need to know to use SOAP to access our database. This service will come in two flavours. Thre will be a free version for you to test out as well as a premium service that will give you greater access to our database.

    You can access our free version of the injury wsdl file right here. If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer then you should see the WSDL content right on your screen. If you are using another browser that just shows you a bunch of rectangles then view the page source and you will see the WSDL content.
