Subject RE: CSV parsing/writing?
Date Thu, 26 May 2005 06:30:16 GMT
I guess CSV commons is a very good suggestion.
This kind of thing is very much required in data staging and processing.
If java needs to work with commercial products to process huge amount of data
then I would suggest to start the initiative on developing something for CSV processing.

On initial thought I can think of following feature list.

CSV Read
1. configurable column selection.
2. Hibernate / struts property driven CSV read configuration. (Here I am talking about referencing
third party xml elements as target references.)
3. xsl driven CSV conversions (CSV to XML, CSV to HTML, CSV to EDI, CSV to *new format*)
4. CSVFilter as that for FileFilter
   column range, column width range, row range

A GPL license might be fine for people who want to pick up this
package and include it in their applications. However, the GPL is
fundamentally incompatible with the ASL, so it's not something we
could pick up and include in any Jakarta Commons component.
