Project Description

I have list of 65000 ISBN numbers and for these i need a script that will gather additional information from some web sources ([url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], google books api or some other resources)

All data will be stored in MySQL table structured (id, isbn, title, description,

category name, cover_image_filename, last_updated_timestamp).

In this table at the moment only id and isbn columns are filled with data. So the script should go through the table and check if last_updated_timestamp is mepty(null) or it is older then one year. if it is, then script should update title, description,

category name and cover_image_filename (download image as [url removed, login to view]) and also update last_updated_timestamp with current time. In case script doesnt find info on source one (for example google books api, it should try second one etc.. until it finds the data.

Cover images should be as big as possible (not just thumbnails)

script can get info for lets say 10-50 ISBNs at a time. it then can be run (cronjob) every 2 mins or so.
