Hi!

I need to create an xml document. I would get the system date and time and depending on the value, would create an xml document. I need to use XALAN as the parser. Any ideas on how this can be done. Eg: if the system date is 30th March, 2005, then my xml file would be

<calendar>
<year> 2005 </year>
<months>
<month> January </month>
<month> February </month>
<month> March </month>
<months>
<year> 2004 </year>
<months>
<month> January </month>
<month> February </month>
<month> March </month>
<month> April </month> ....
<months>
</calendar>

This xml document should be genearated on the fly.

Any ideas plz help!!!

Well, Apache Xalan is not a parser but an XSLT implementation. What you want is Apache Xerces. I guess you could generate this file using an XSLT stylesheet as well but I'm thinking it should be a lot easier to use the DOM API to construct the XML document programmatically.

See the Java Developer's Almanac for some example code snippets.
