I am writing a Java program to extract the abstract of the wikipedia page given the title of the wikipedia page. I have done some research and found out that the abstract with be in rvsection=0
So for example if I want the abstract of 'Eiffel Tower" wiki page then I am querying using the api in the following way.
and parse the XML data which we get and take the wikitext in the tag <rev xml:space="preserve"> which represents the abstract of the wikipedia page. But this wiki text also contains the infobox data which I do not need. I would like to know if there is anyway in which I can remove the infobox data and get only the wikitext related to the page's abstract Or if there is any alternative method by which I can get the abstract of the page directly.
Looking forward to your help.
Thanks in Advance
