   Re: [xml-dev] Out of memory error with XML and Java ResultSet

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hi Jason,

Do you know the typical size of the XML text generated from each row? 
Also, do you need to have the full document buffered in memory or do you 
really want it as a stream that's being sent somewhere else?

In general, you're going to want to avoid any approach (such as DOM) 
that builds a representation of the XML structure in memory. Even just 
buffering the output text in memory is probably going to cause problems 
if this gets longer than a few MB. Your best bet is probably just to 
stream it out, either directly to the destination or to a file on the 
local system.
