Project Description

Simple scraping project.

1) At 09:15 AM IST, code will go to:

[url removed, login to view]

2) Under the "Equity" tab, it will select the drop down as "All"

3) It will then scrape all the columns in the table viz:

Symbol, Pre-Open, Price, Chng, % Chng, Prev. Close, Quantity, Value (in lakhs), FFM, Cap(crs.), NM 52w H, NM 52w L, Data Date (IST), UpdateTime (IST)

4) Note that Pre-Open is a picture and you need to store the picture inside blob structure in MySQL

5) Once the data is scraped for all entries of the table as per the columns mentioned above, the code will dump that into a MySQL DB's new table - lets say we will call it "Pre_Open" (ID and password will be provided)

6) In the MySQL DB, the Symbol will need to be searched with for Symbol ID from a master table and Symbol ID along with the other columns above will need to be stored in the new table. So basically, you would get the ID for the Symbol from "Equity_Master" table and that ID along with the columns above would need to be stored in the "Pre-Open" table

7) The next day the code should again automatically run at 09:15 AM IST and scrape this data and repeat the process.

8) Provide with an additional small UI that can prove that the blob data for the image described above ("Pre-Open" column), can be shown to the user in a image control after reading the blob data from the DB. This is very simple UI just to prove that the image can be generated form the blob data.

Some points to note:

1) The code can be in C#/[url removed, login to view] v5.0 or above.

2) It should not use web browser control for scraping.

3) While scraping, proper progress message should be shown to the user so that the user understands that scraping is in progress and what is the status of the data being scraped.

4) There should not be any need to run the code manually every day. The code once run should automatically "awaken" at 09:15 AM IST and scan.

5) All dates and datetime stamp to be stored in IST

6) For holidays, when the market is closed, when the code awakens at 09:15 AM IST, it should understand from the top of the page which states: "Pre-Open Order Collection CLOSEDAs on Oct 07, 2016 09:07:47 IST", whether a new set of data has come in for that day or its a holiday and the old data of previous date is being shown or not. If an old data is shown, the code will do nothing and sleep, else it will scrape

7) Your code will be tested for 1 week (to include a holiday testing) and then milestone will be released

8) No upfront milestone payment pls.

9) Finally, pls read all the text above and then only bid.

10) Delivery in 2 days if thats fine.
