What is the best and simple way to generate xhtml from an csv file in java at the server side? Isn't jsp the right tool for it or are there better options.?
Thanks.

JSP would be the way to go if the XHTML is to be served to a browser. Any actual file I/O (and further processing, if there is any) should be done in a backing bean or a servlet, though, not in the JSP itself.

Thanks, that was fast.
It stays on the server side and will be delivered to a Content Delivery Platform.

Moving off to servlets since has little to do with HTML/JavaScript other than the final outcome.

If this was my problem I would get an example of the desired XHTML text and study it to find regular features which could turn into Java classes and methods. Since an XHTML page forms a DOM there will be a logical hierarchy.

Try to locate the point at which a line of CSV gets turned into XHTML - is this a line in a Table or what.

Is the final result entirely derived from the CSV or is their other content which must be included?

It actually sounds like an exercise in XML more than anything else.

Convert the CSV to the appropriate in-memory XHTML DOM and then serialize.

As such, moving to the XML forum as this issue has no Servlets dimension.
