Hi Experts,

Please give me some suggesstion for below,

I have batch process for which I will get  a txt file as a input which will have 150k byte length or lesser. The txt file will have a header line like "date, time etc...." as one line.
and remaining will  as xml tags.
Before the xml tag starts, I will have 20 byte string like "A0000001-0000001-1-4" which is
Auto Number + unique seq# + split xml seq # + total split xmls.
If the txt file is 150k then the input txt fiel is splitting the string to 5.
so in between xml i  will be having
A0000001-0000001-1-5
A0000001-0000001-2-5
A0000001-0000001-3-5
A0000001-0000001-4-5
A0000001-0000001-5-5

This is used to spllit the string in the iput file to 5 parts for some reason.
I am using File stream,  to open the file and do my operations.

Now, i want to read the file and find out for

A0000001-0000001-1-4
A0000001-0000001-2-4
A0000001-0000001-3-4
A0000001-0000001-4-4

and remove it so that i will get the proper xml.

and in the same way as output from my batch i will get the same kind of xml string.

I need to find out the size and if it is > 30k, i need to split the xml string using (need to insert the below split string in between the xml string and send).
A0000001-0000001-1-4
A0000001-0000001-2-4
A0000001-0000001-3-4
A0000001-0000001-4-4


Below, is the sample xml string,

F0008243-0000001-1-5<AutoPolicy><PolicyNumber>F0008243-0000001-1-5</PolicyNumber><TransactionCode>52</TransactionCode><PolicyType> </PolicyType><Process>RENEWALS</Process><State>NJ
F0008243-0000001-2-5</State><Company>NJM</Company><RateIndicator>3</RateIndicator><PolicyEffectiveDate>02/25/2012</PolicyEffectiveDate><RateEffectiveDateRenewingFrom>3
F0008243-0000001-3-5</RateEffectiveDateRenewingFrom

Please tell me the best way to do it.

Basically while reading input file I need to remove the split string (F0008243-0000001-1-5) and stror in DB.

After processing i need to insert the split string into xml string and send.

Please suggesst me the best approach.

Thanks

Hmm .. how about reading all in a string and then using a regular expression for the 20-byte string to split the input. This would work as long as the autonumber string is not supposed to occur inside XML.

OR to be more robust you could write a simple parser which reads a autonumber first and then it keeps reading XML till the ending tag and then switches the state and read a number again. This should be simple considering the XML has balanced < and > characters and once you encounter a starting < you read till and ending >.
