Subject RE: Limitation of file size with DOM
Date Fri, 12 Jan 2007 17:04:05 GMT
Thanks Jason and Martin for the replies,
I am now confused with the contradictory experiences of both of you.
Is it possible to let me know the xerces version, OS, kernel version
etc., on which you have seen this.
I just wanted to understand the scenario where it worked (for Jason) and
it dint work (for Martin)

Thanks again,

I've used Xerces to parse file sizes in the 500Mb range...

The only limitation I had was on the memory of the machine...

Cheers, jas.

I tested parsing large files. The memory consumption was aprox. 7 to 10
times of the XML-File-Size (pretty printed). But there was at least a
limit on the size of the XML-File (aprox. 250Mb) where the xerces (2.6)
bounces with strange errors.. and there *was* still some RAM left :-(
(tested on linux). So I was forced to switch to SAX.
