<defaultLocale>en</defaultLocale>
<namespace>
<name locale="en">DOTNET</name>
<lastChanged>2006-06-14T08:49:20</lastChanged>
<namespace><name locale="en">some</name></namespace>

<namespace><name locale="en">Presentation</name>
<namespace>
<name>Package1</name>
<shortcut><name>Object11</name></shortcut>
<folder><name>Folder11</name><shortcut><name>Object111</name> </shortcut></folder>
<folder>
<name>Folder12</name>
<shortcut><name>Object121</name></shortcut>
<shortcut><name>Object122</name></shortcut>
<shortcut><name>Object123</name></shortcut>
</folder>
</namespace>
<namespace>
<name>Package2</name>
<folder>
<name>Folder21</name>
<shortcut><name>Object21</name> </shortcut>
<folder><name>Folder211</name><shortcut><name>Object2111</name> </shortcut></folder>
</folder>
<folder>
<name>Folder22</name>
<shortcut><name>Object221</name> </shortcut>
<shortcut><name>Object222 </name> </shortcut>
<folder>
<name>Folder221</name>
<shortcut><name>Object2211</name> </shortcut>
<folder>

</folder>
</folder>
</folder>
</namespace>
</namespace>
</namespace>

And I want the output like this:
Package Name
Object Name
Path
Package1
Object11
      

Package1/Object11

Package1
      

Object111
      

Package1/Folder11/Object111

Package1
      

Object121
      

Package1/Folder12/Object121

Package1
      

Object122
      

Package1/Folder12/Object122

Package1
      

Object123
      

Package1/Folder12/Object123

Package2
      

Object21
      

Package2/Folder21/Object21

Package2
      

Object2111
      

Package2/Folder21/Folder211/Object2111

Package2
      

Object221
      

Package2/Folder22/Object221

Package2
      

Object222
      

Package2/Folder22/Object222

Package2
      

Object2211
      

Package2/Folder22/Folder221/Object2211

Package2
      

Object22111
      

Package2/Folder22/Folder221/Folder2211/Object22111

 
      

 
      

 

 
      

 
      

 

 
      

 
      

 

Please give me some solution using XSLT or any other way

Thanks in advance

You need have xsl file for the corresponding xml file. Read both xml and xsl file into string variables and call mergeResponse method as show below. Below is the complete code transform xml and xsl into html.
You need xalan.jar and jdk1.4.
Below is the sample code.

import java.io.File;
import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.FileNotFoundException;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.StringReader;
