Finally one other thought that no one has mentioned, namely, using an XSL
Transform to pick out what you need into another, hopefully, small enough
document that you can use JDOM with.  Of course, it may still not be small

Subject: [jdom-interest] JDOM and very large files

Hi everyone,

I am trying to parse a very large file (1.3 Gb) using JDOM. I have used JDOM
before with smaller files, but never large ones. It seems like the builder
attempts to read the whole file into memory and build the document. Is there
a way to read only part of the document into memory ? I only beed to read
through the file sequentially, random access to parts of the doc is not
important. Does anyone have any suggestions how to do this with JDOM ? Java
in general ? Any other language ?

Otherwise I may have to write my own parser to do it in PERL. The document
structure is fairly simple (just huge) so this shouldn't be too hard, but I
would prefer to do it with JDOM if possible.
