Have you ever experienced a problem where if xml file is too big ?

For example you have an image gallery and you simply put too many pictures, and what happens that xml gets cut off, no closing tag at all, you get an error “element is malformed” and it fails to load completely.

And this only happens online, not offline.

Personally I use dreamweaver to make XML files, and if they’re too big, I validate them and dreamweaver shows me all the unclosed tags and stuff like that that I might have overlooked. Using notepad makes it very confusing :D.

I hope I understood this correctly :D

Are you saying that the xml load process cuts off? and the xml file can’t be loaded fully?

I must say that’s a rare thing but you may consider compressing the big xml in zip format and then load that zip into your app and then extract the info out of there… that may help.

I’m currently facing a similar problem. I want to send a XML to PHP using sendandload() and this function is limited to 64k size.
I havent’s still found a workaround. If anyone has a solution please inform…
Anyway I think this is “our” mistake, because XML files should only be used for storing a small amount of info. For larger stuff we should use databases :(

Not a mistake. If you use DDBB instead xml people will not buy it.
Try to separate the info in several xmls, if possible.
