Sportwire contains the essential components to translate an ANPA sports newswire feed into XML format and then to read the XML into relational tables. The story parser is extensible and can be easily adapted. Parser classes included in this release can parse scoreboards, game updates, recaps and previews; it is just the components needed to construct sports news websites using ANPA news stories and a relational database. Also, since the ANPA tagging scheme is not fully normalized, the parser must use some heuristics to match certain incoming news items with the specific games.
