Earlier this week, James Moberg asked me if I had ever used the jSoup HTML Parser with ColdFusion. Until then, I had never even heard of it; all of my experimentation with HTML parsing in ColdFusion has been done with TagSoup. Now that ColdFusion 10 allows for custom, per-application Java libraries, however, playing with JAR files is incredibly simple. So, I decided to throw it in an Application.cfc and try it out. And, let me say, it is awesome! jSoup uses a jQuery-like syntax to allow for method chaining and effortless CSS-oriented DOM traversal.
