My need is to transform variety of data structures into and from a custom XML representation.

Think of "wrapping" data formats to a defined XML structure and vice versa. Think of data formats such as:

  • trivial CSV (including quoting, headers, etc.)
  • length-based records (defined by offset + length)
  • complex nested structures using multiple separators
  • inhouse formats combining methods above.

An example transformation of a "CSV" to a defined XML might look like this:

foo;bar -> <row><head>foo</head><tail>bar</tail></row>

<row><head>foo</head><tail>bar</tail></row> -> foo;bar

So far I've been using ServingXML tool, but it got various deeply-rooted limitations.

Any suggestions?
