Hi.

I'm trying to generate a .XML from some files in an specific folder.

i found this code on internet but that code isn't "automatic" the programmer filled all the information, i need to read it from the folder.


public class WriteXMLFile {

public static void main(String argv[]) {

try {

DocumentBuilderFactory docFactory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
DocumentBuilder docBuilder = docFactory.newDocumentBuilder();

// root elements
Document doc = docBuilder.newDocument();
Element rootElement = doc.createElement("company");
doc.appendChild(rootElement);

// staff elements
Element staff = doc.createElement("Staff");
rootElement.appendChild(staff);

// set attribute to staff element
Attr attr = doc.createAttribute("id");
attr.setValue("1");
staff.setAttributeNode(attr);

// shorten way
// staff.setAttribute("id", "1");

// firstname elements
Element firstname = doc.createElement("firstname");
firstname.appendChild(doc.createTextNode("yong"));
staff.appendChild(firstname);

// lastname elements
Element lastname = doc.createElement("lastname");
lastname.appendChild(doc.createTextNode("mook kim"));
staff.appendChild(lastname);

// nickname elements
Element nickname = doc.createElement("nickname");
nickname.appendChild(doc.createTextNode("mkyong")) ;
staff.appendChild(nickname);

// salary elements
Element salary = doc.createElement("salary");
salary.appendChild(doc.createTextNode("100000"));
staff.appendChild(salary);

// write the content into xml file
TransformerFactory transformerFactory = TransformerFactory.newInstance();
Transformer transformer = transformerFactory.newTransformer();
DOMSource source = new DOMSource(doc);
StreamResult result = new StreamResult(new File("C:\\file.xml"));

// Output to console for testing
// StreamResult result = new StreamResult(System.out);

transformer.transform(source, result);

System.out.println("File saved!");

} catch (ParserConfigurationException pce) {
pce.printStackTrace();
} catch (TransformerException tfe) {
tfe.printStackTrace();
}
}
}

I need a loop to repeat the reading from the folder to all files inside them i just made a part of it but it only writes the first file or the last one because it's overwriting the xml file i need to add more elements instead of overwrite them.


thanks you.
