Hi ,

I am generating the below xml for CSV using ricebridge.xmlman opensource api, can anybody please suggest any other free opensource api to do the same functionality.
Or if we can do with XSL please provide the XSL code.
Thanks.
XML:

This really works nice, but it uses DOM will it be good if there is large amount of data in CSV file,
I mean how will be the performance?
and one more thing is in CSV file if I have the blank values for columns the XML is not proper it takes the next column value.

You could turn it into text printing if you're worried about the performance. The other issue sounds like you need to do a bugfix
