need to collect historical data for horse racing which is supplied via xml feed.
project will need to traverse all the pages to collect the various data. more info on the feed can be found here: [url removed, login to view]
data will need to be placed within mysql db
once setup, the project will need to automatically obtain the previous day data on an ongoing basis.
each of the xml pages will relate to a criteria, based on racenumber, date and location (3 locations). from there, the prrgram will obtain horse, weight, barrier, weather, track, etc etc...
the mysql db tables will only need to be simplified to capture the horse data... no need for relational db and many tables.
