Help needed please - anybody out there who knows about the Wikipedia API?

Dear Munich Semantic Web Meetuppers,

any Wikipedia mavens out there?
I am trying to design a disambiguation functionality with Wikipedia.
In particular, I want to retrieve the content of what is called disambiguation pages in the http UI.
Now Wikipedia has an API and a tutorial, but all I see are "action=opensearch" and "action=query", e.g.
http://en.wikipedia.o...­
Both does not deliver the (very useful) content of the disambiguation page, e.g.
http://en.wikipedia.o...­.

Please help!!
Thanks :)
Cheers,
Jan

Hm ... I didn't know about the API. In the projects at my university doing that they scraped the actual webpages without using an API. Did you have a look around? http://www.google.com...­
