Re: [xml-dev] applying XPath to a very large document

dom4j (http://dom4j.org) has some support for working with very large documents.
What's implemented now allows you to trigger events based on simple paths using
only element names (like "/ROWSET/ROW"), and you can use the events to discard
portions of the document you know you don't need to keep. The FAQ has an entry
describing how to do this.
