Response Data Holder[edit]

PlanoTse is a personal tool for mining the global data. That means web search automation. An application of this is in job search automation. One of the data types in PlanoTse is Response. It is a data holder for keeping both original and derived web data. Response and Script are two of the most important types of data holders in PlanoTse.

In web search, each webpage presented on your browser is called an HTTP Response. When you enter a web address and ask the browser to go there, you make an HTTP Request. In web search automation, many HTTP requests are automatically generated and many HTTP responses, i.e. retrieved webpages, are sent back to you from various web servers. As part of the web search automation process, PlanoTse carries out the following steps for each returned webpage:

How an HTTP response is processed
  1. Create a Response data holder, which is stored as an XML file. For example, Response12345.xml, where 12345 is the ID number of the data holder.
  2. Store the content of the webpage in an HTML file, e.g. Response12345.htm.
  3. Store all useless links found on the webpage in an XML file, e.g. Response12345.RemovedLinks.
  4. Store all useful text and links found on the webpage in an HTML file, e.g. Response12345.txt.
  5. Etc.

Responses - Data Item Collection[edit]

For a particular data domain, all response holders are stored under the same collection directory, whose name is Responses. This directory is located under either MyData for a Personal Domain or OurData for an Impersonal Domain. All are of course under the data root directory as known to the menu command [Tools » Directories » Data Root].

Response Attachment Folder[edit]

Each response holder is named as Response12345.xml, where 12345 is the holder number. Attached to it is a set of data item attachments. All attachments for a data item are stored under a data item folder.
