Hello, I am developing a java-project which is able to ‘crawl’ through the internet. I would however like to count how many times my application is used (and by who/where/when…) and since I am already on sourceforge I thought, “why not use piwik?”.
If I’m not mistaking, piwik counts by counting how many times a certain php-page has been opened, where the URL contains the extra information. I tried to go through the script, but since java can’t give through a ‘document’ and such (e.g. document.writeln(***)) huge chuncks of scriptingcode had to be altered. At the moment, I couldn’t get it to work…
If this is the case (the program actually counts by such a php-url), could you supply some information on how to create this URL with which tags (those &url=’…’ things) so I could acces the counting mechanism through Java? Or do you know another way to count from Java-code?
I am very eager to hear the answer,
