in thread Best way to aggregate many silos of data into a search form

Screen scraping was my first approach, and frankly the one I am most comfortable with. But for the combination of net latency, the time it took for each of the databases to process the request, and the time for the script to execute, it was just too laggy. It would be fine for one or two sources I suppose, but we are talking about 6 or 7 databases, just for starters (!)
