AWW controls a selection of web robots, that collect information about how web sites change over time. It stores this information, and can export it in various ways.
The included robots are few and simple, but it is easy to include more, depending on what information should be collected. AWW is mainly a control centre, that executes tasks, and stores the results. Initially the goal is not to provide a lot of functionality, but rather to make something that is easily extendible.
The project was created by the Sourceforge user fivecode, to be used in his master project at the University of Oslo.
