Since XML is pure text, you have a lot of options for creating it, ranging from typing in a text editor to writing Java code. The first question is - what is the source of the data?
You can save XML the same way you would save any long variable length character sequence.

What I am trying to develop a servlet.
Servlet should do the following:
1). reads an XML file,
2). determines the formats of the data,
3). creates a table in SQL Server 7.0 to accept the file, and
4). loads the file into the SQL Server table.
Your detailed instructions are greatly appreciated.
Form your above message, I believe that I can create a XML file in notepat or wordpat. When I save it, I use xml as it extension as I use html for a html file. Am I right?
I agree. Here's the link:
