Hi,

I have a xls file with two sheets namely sheet1 and sheet2

sheet 1 having 3 columns say

1. product 2. total 3. cost
has about 100 records


sheet2 also having same 3 columns say

1. product 2. total 3. cost
has about 10 records.

I need to convert above xls to xml with similar structure as follows


<sheet1>
<product1>
<product></product>
<total></total>
<cost></cost>
</product1>
<product2>
<product></product>
<total></total>
<cost></cost>
</product2>
.....more products
</sheet1>

<sheet2>
<product1>
<product></product>
<total></total>
<cost></cost>
</product1>
<product2>
<product></product>
<total></total>
<cost></cost>
</product2>
.....more products
</sheet2>

what is the best way to achieve it. Any ideas, suggestions, sample code, links, source code highly appreciated. Thanks in advance

You can use Apache POI to read the file, and then use any number of XML APIs to write it, like DOM, JDom, XOM etc.
