Check the following link
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4010726/handling-empty-nodes-using-java-dom

the catch is ....getNodeValue() which should be checked against null to find out if node is empty or not.

Example: consider this string
" Parse this date string 10 juil 2014 @@@parse date " OR "10 juil 2014" (This is easy with SimpleDateFormat using Locale.French) but I want the solution to extract date first from the string and then convert to Date using SimpleDateFormat.

What would be the best module available for parsing html?
My intention is to parse html that contains a table of 5 columns and any number of rows, and have a hash ref like $html->{1}->{col1}=data11, $html->{1}->{col2}=data12 ...$html->{2}->{col1}=data21, $html->{2}->{col2}=data22...etc
Would there be an existing module that can do this without too much effort on my part?
