Hi everyone,

I am not sure if this is the right forum to ask this question, but I
realized that with so many XML experts in this forum, it can't hurt  :). I
have a requirement where we need to convert a potentially very large XML
file into a fixed format file and the order of conversion may not be
sequential. Since the file size is large, DOM/JDOM doesn't help much and
also, since we cannot process sequentially, SAX may not help. I am getting
familiar with a new API called StAX. But I am not sure whether that helps

Do you guys have any suggestions? How do commercial translation tools handle
the situation? Appreciate your thought.
