I need to parse a big xml file  with many children and have to  update the
database with children and their parents.
I have been trying two days but i could not found any solution.

Formate of the xml file:

		<taxNode id=" " name="Root">

			<taxNode id="frist" name="firstelement">
				<taxNode id="firstchild"
name="firstchildelement" />

			<taxNode id="second" name="secondelement" />


It has to insert data into the db  in the following format:-

		id = 1    title = "root"  			parentid = 0
		id = 2 	title = "firstelement"  		parentid = 1
		id = 3	title="firstchildelement"		parentid = 2
		id = 4    title="secondelement"		parentid = 1


This is just sample. Each element has many children and siblings. 

Any help in this regard would  be highly appreciated.
