Simple Algorithm\Logic

The database query would fetch more than 1000 records as resultset.

Now, I have to loop through each record and extract values from records and each record would be considered as a client request. Each client request is formed as a XML and written into a file. Limitation is each file should contain ONLY 200 requests (records). How should I dynamically create the XML objects for every 20 records and put them in a file.

I.e. The 1000 records should result in 5 files with 200 records (XML requests) each. Could somebody help me in doing this?

Thanks.

What code do you have at the moment?

Is this homework? ;-)

Just create a new xml insert every 200 reads:

int numRecords = 0;
StringBuffer xmlInsert = new StringBuffer();
while(resultSet.next()) {
    ++numRecords;
    xmlInsert.append("<root>");
    xmlInsert.append("<node1>");
    xmlInsert.append(rs.getString(1));
    xmlInsert.append("</node1>");
    if (numRecords == 200) {
       xmlInsert.append("</root>");
       doInsert(xmlInsert.toString();
       xmlInsert.setLength(0);
    }
}

Assuming your database is SQL driven i would use the LIMIT clause in the select statement

     SELECT whatever
     FROM whereve
     WHERE conditions
     ORDER BY sequence
     LIMIT   first, number

before limit is your normal request. producing 1000 records
Limit then is a way of aying: but only send the ones from nr 'first' and 'number' forvard
    Limit 0, 5      // the first five
    Limit 5, 5      // the next 5
...

You wil be doing several queries, but each return only records enough for one XML file

Storing the entire file contents in a string is unnecessary and could use lots of memory.
Instead simply write the xml directly to the file, and switch files every 200 records.

FileOutputStream out = null;
int n = 0;
while(resultSet.next())
{
    if (n%200==0)
    {
       if (out!=null)
       {
          // Close currently open file
          out.close();
       }
       // Open next file
       out = openNextFile();
    }

    // write xml to out as required
    ....

    n++;
}

Thanks all for the response. It is not a home work :-)

The code I currently have is creation of XML and put into a file for records less than 200.
Only logic missing is - if more than 200 records then split them into different files containing only 200 records. Also, restricting in the SQL query is not desirable for us our requirments. We have to fetch all existing records and split them in the java program.

I would try the other options listed on monday and update you all. Thanks again.

>>Only logic missing

This should cope with any number:

int numRecords = 0;
StringBuffer xmlInsert = new StringBuffer();
while(resultSet.next()) {
      ++numRecords;
      xmlInsert.append("<root>");
      xmlInsert.append("<node1>");
      xmlInsert.append(rs.getString(1));
      xmlInsert.append("</node1>");
      if (numRecords == 200) {
            writeToFile(closeRoot, xmlInsert);
      }
      if (xmlInsert.getLength() > 0)
            writeToFile(closeRoot, xmlInsert);
      }
}

public void writeToFile(String closeRoot, StringBuffer xmlInsert) {
      xmlInsert.append(closeRoot);
      // Do the file writing, calling xmlInsert.toString for the contents
      xmlInsert.setLength(0);
}

Oops - just spotted an error:

>>if (numRecords == 200) {

should be

if (numRecords % 200 == 0) {
0
