VerCheck Version Change Detector

VerCheck checks websites for new versions of the software you use.



I used to check over a dozen websites each day to see if new versions of the software I use had been released. This was time consuming and error prone. VerCheck automates this

process by checking the websites of the programs you use to see if the version numbers have changed. It comes preconfigured from the factory with 113 applications.



For each application, you give the URL of a page to check.

You also specify some string that is on the page, usually

containing the version number. If this string is not

present, presumably something has changed. You have to then

manually figure out what, and install the new software, then

adjust VerCheck to look for the new version number.



To add a new application hit (+), then enter an application

name, an URL and the marker -- an expected response string

that will be embedded in the web page returned if the

version has not changed.

Click"Check-for-New-Versions to check the entire list of

applications to see if any have changed.

Click Restore-Defaults to restore the factory setting

URLs, and markers. You would do this most commonly after

using a new updated version of VerCheck. Your own app

settings won't be affected, but any of the factory apps will

be updated.

You can adjust the widths of the columns by dragging the

separator lines between the column headers.

This utility is an implementation of the Version Checker

student project described at versionchecker in the projects section of the

java glossary.

The results of daily running this utility with the factory

settings are posted under utilities in the Java glossary.



you can use Java regular expressions in the marker field for

matching. Just prefix them with the string regex:

e.g. regex:version[- ]+9\.9
