processing a large XML file

By ivorytower ·
I'm looking for the best way to process a very large XML file ? I recieve a flat file and transform it in XML using XSLT. The resultant XML file needs to be validated, parsed etc..Any tips ?

Unfortunately the XML documents that I use aren?t more than a thousand or so nodes, but I use the MSXML DOM and check parseError property to determine if there was a problem with the document. For large XML documents, SAX is a better idea, you?ll need to create a parse exception handler to determine if the document isn?t well formed. You should be able to find plenty of examples of this. Hope this helps.
