    Question Read Excel file, write to wordpress

    Hello Javafolks!

    I got some basic java knowledge but now I need some help. I wonder if it is possible to automate this following task in java. (Feel free to recommend any other language you might think suits this task better)
    I am currently helping a company to update their website information, more specifically I'm updating the course dates on the courses they sell through their website. It's a quite simple process so I thought it might be possible to automate it.
    What i basically do is that i read the information of what course that needs to be updated with a new course date and then i log into the wordpress page and navigate to the course and add the date.

    I need the java program to be able to do these following actions.
    1. Open a webpage
    2. write to a form
    3. click a button
    4. search for a text on screen
    5. click on a specific place on the screen/click on a link
    6. read from an excel file.
    and so on..

    Do you think it would be at all possible or should I end the idea right now?
    Thanks guys!

    Of course it is (not exactly as written, but in princple). It is not EASY.

    Yeah anything is possible. That's why it is not a valid argument to go do something. I'd rather ask myself: is this a good idea? If you want an answer to that, I'd start with stating your intentions. WHY do you want to do this?

    True. But I usually don't get too far with those conversations.

    My Motto was always "Anything is possible", of course, that does not say that it is recommendable. ;-)

    I know, but I'm stubborn as a mule ;)
