Application that can retreive information from the internet for inclusion into a database

Last Modified: 2013-12-25
Hello Experts,
I am trying to locate an application that can retrieve specified information from the internet and place that information into a database, an SQL or MySQL. Whichever is best for a large number of records? An example of what the application would do is; a user enters a search in the app for say a car made in the US, maybe a Dodge Viper and then the user indicates what specification  they need for the searched item, in this case a Dodge Viper. The information to gather would be something like what colors are available, engine specs, year manufactured, cost, etc. Then have the application separated out information for database entry for retrieval at some other time when requested by another web application. I don’t think I want to have to retrieve the information again from the internet.
I hope I explained this well enough. Does anyone have any ideas if an application exits like this or does it need to be created from scratch or even if it is possible. I figured if anyone would know the answer to this, it would be someone from Expert Exchange.
