spatialite_xml_load - parse any XML document, and create and populate a DB-file


[-h] [-x pathname] [-d pathname] [-cg] [-xl] [-nl num] [-pl num] [-jo] [-cs num] [-m]


spatialite_xml_load will parse any generic XML document of unlimited complexity, and will consequently create and populate a DB-file faithfully translating the XML tree into many relationally joined DBMS tables.

The whole translation is performed in such a way so to be sure that absolutely no information will be never lost or suppressed.

If two (or even more) XML files share exactly the same identical logical layout (i.e. they all support the same identical formal schema definition) this tool is capable to merge all them within the same DB-file.

There are no imposed size-limits: some huge GML files as big as many GBs have been successfully loaded by using this tool.
