I have about 1,000,000 XML files and I am using XpathExpression with Java language to walk through the XML tags and get my considered data.

Imagine I have about 5000 tags for name, 5000 tags for family name, 5000 tags for age, and only 1 tag for date in each file. Now I want to repeat date tag to 5000 times too.

Would you mind let me know how is it possible?

Hi Sara, welcome to the Ranch!

Without knowing what you mean by "5000 tags for name" and "repeat date tag 5000 times" it's hard to say what you should do. Maybe you should change your XPath expression to search for all of those elements? Maybe you should write some kind of loop which does 5000 searches?

A sample of what the 5000 name tags actually look like would help, for example.
