I want to create a XML from the folder specified.
For example if i give c:\\ to my xml generator, the generator should generate an xml file containing all the folders and files recursively in the c:\\.

It will look some thing like this.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

<folder_root name="Passed folder name with complete path">

<folder name="A">

<folder name="B">

<folder name="C">

<file name="file2" />


<file name="file3" />


<file name="file1" />

<file name="file3" />

The first thing you will have to master is the use of the class. This class contains all the methods needed to locate the directories and files in your C:\\ root.
I agree. Here's the link:
