Hi all,

We need to process very large XML files (up to a few ten MB). So we 
can't process the whole file with DOM in memory. We are prepared to use 
SAX to parse a large XML file and store into our data structure in the 
disk (propietary data structure or RDBMS). We'll also provide a set of 
APIs for access the contents in the XML file. Now the XML content change 
is not required.

However, instead of developing a customized solution, I'd like to know 
if there is any existing tools and library handling large XML files in disk.
