Hello,

Looking for a library to read text files and write to XML (incl. XML to Text).

Downloaded JDOM to take care of creating  the XML.    Can Apache POI be used to read / write the text files?

Written unformatted data to text files in the past using FileReader/FileWriter, not sure how to control the formatting of the text file the same way ApachePOI supports writing to CSV etc.

Any other libraries available?

An example:

#----------------------------------------------------------------
"hr"              ! Units
14              ! Entries
"4"              ! No of Columns
#----------------------------------------------------------------

 ID           Parameter     LowBound      UpBound        
Para1     abc                10                     20            


Thanks.

use openCSV to read/write csv format. use JAXB to read write xml data, the advantage of using both is you can deal with bean in application represnting each record in CSV/XML

Another thing you should take a look at is Apache Camel
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apache_Camel
http://camel.apache.org/

Camel is a framework for allowing integration of a lot of remote systems. For this it has adapters to read and write a wide variety  of formats and to describe the flow of information from a source to a destination. Here's an example of how to read a CSV:

I need to read .xml and write to .txt (and vice versa).

I've looked into your links - is there an easy way to convert from .csv to .txt?

Ignore the above post.

I've just worked out that I'll need to look into if the libraries write to tab seperated value file.
