"We were facing an unusual situation in which we have to extract information from a 113 GB ( GB not MB) xml file, it’s a
very large one, I’ve tried a lot of tools trying to manipulate that file without success, even trying to open it was quite
impossible most of the time, so we were far from extracting data.
Some people told me that my best bet was to split this file, and it makes me discover XmlSplit, before purchasing license,
I’ve ask their customer support if XmlSplit was able handle and split a 113 GB file, their answer was YES. I purchased
the license and I tried to accomplish my task. And “WOW” it works fine, my huge file was split and those split files were
XML State of the Art, and I was able to sub split those resulting files. We were very happy about XMLSPLIT, it’s awesome!
I recommend XMLSPLIT as a very powerful and reliable XML tool."

I was facing a thorny problem of splitting up data from several large files of identical information generated from geographic subsets of a large
State's highway bridge inventory. The files are relatively shallow XML-wise, but have lots of records. The data needed to be loaded into a new
database but I found that the source files were just too big for the import utility to manage. With XmlSplit, I was able to chop the files into
manageable subsets automatically using a simple batch file, without pain. I never had to actually open the files to edit them at all. XmlSplit
saved me many hours of work. While the concept of splitting XML files into smaller chunks is simple from a conceptual perspective, actually
writing a utility to do this chopping would have been a horror-show and blown my budget. The support staff is highly responsive and has addressed
all my questions to my complete satisfaction. Recommended!"

"We have purchased the license for XmlSplit.
The program creates exactly the xml files we need, including the
XmlDeclaration. A file of 2.5 GB was processed without any problems - and in a very
Johan Van Loon, TMB Bookshop, Belgium.
"I had to import from a 46 GB XML file containing information about all Danish cars, an XML file which I could not open in any way. XMLSplit was the tool, that gave me
bits of about 1.5 GB, which can be read with standard SAX based tools. As I could not open even the start of the file, I had no clue to how to use the XMLSplit program.
The support from Xponent is second to none, and told me that the FREE XMLMax Viewer could open the xml file, and we found the solution, which was to split on level 2.
The XMLSplit solved a problem, which had been unsolvable for us for 6 months for a real minor investment. I can really recommend this excellent piece of software."

"I have requirements to open large XML files(1-3 GB), validate them and
split them into small files. I came across
XMLMax and it was the exact tool I was looking for. It is exceptionally
fast in opening very large files and most reliable when validating files. Customer support is EXCELLENT."

"XMLSplit has saved me immense amounts of time in working with large, unruly
XML files. The interface is easy to use, and the program itself is quick
and concise. All I can say is XMLSplit is awesome!"

"Your editor does an excellent job with files that my primary XML editor will
not load in a reasonable time. I was viewing files having 700,000-800,000
nodes. XMLMax opened and displayed these files quickly and efficiently."
Ken White, LegalXtraNet, San Antonio, TX
"I found XMLMax to be a very quick and easy way to view large (~2GB) XML
files. Further, Xponent's XmlSplit product solved a problem I had
importing these large XML files into a database. This tool splits them
into smaller, well-formed XML
files that can be processed by other tools. XmlSplit
can be run from within a PowerShell script with a host
of input arguments. It provides the flexibility to extract
almost any XML fragments required into a smaller XML file. These are
great tools to keep in your toolbox when working with XML."
Stephen Cann, Uptick Data, San Francisco.
"I used XmlSplit to quickly split very large XML files (up to 5GB in size and
more than 1 million nodes).
I spent some time researching different solutions that were available,
including writing my own
parsing utility. All I can say, is that I was relieved when I finally found
Xponent's XMLSplit utility.
XMLSplit does not disappoint and definitely worth every penny. XMLSplit
chews through very large XML files quickly
and reliably; it can be executed from the command line and provides numerous
output file options to meet
the most demanding file splitting requirements.
Even if you do not want to
split the file, you can use the
Include/Append file functionality and other options to modify your source
XML file to create an output
file format to meet any number of other custom requirements. The new wizard
provides a flexible and
quick way for developers or administrators to generate the correct command
line scripts in either WSH,
WPS, or standard DOS command line script depending on your file splitting
Both XMLMax and XMLSplit have only been improved and made better since my
Product feedback is always well received and customer service is beyond
If you have a requirement to split any size XML file, especially very large
XML files, XMLMax and XMLSplit
are essential accessories for your XML development arsenal."

"If you work with large XML files and you are tired of waiting for your
data to load into your favorite editor or maybe not load at all, try XMLMax!!!
Not only does it load fast, but it moves through your large files quickly
and seamlessly. Try loading a 1.1 GB file in less than 10 seconds. It's
a great tool for managing large XML datasets."
Bret Godwin, Senior Software Engineer, Sysynergy Solutions, Denver,CO
Recently I came across a tool that was very helpful in the review of large XML documents…..REALLY large xml
documents…..Hundreds of megabytes and more! In the years I’ve been working with XML, every so often I come across
a document that I can’t read, can’t process, or can’t otherwise easily research for a data integration application.
The tools I usually employ either hit errors or take forever to open while parsing thru thousands upon thousands
of elements and attributes. "

I purchased XMLMax in order to perform fast XSLT transforms on large XML files
involving multiple lookups across the document tree - it runs in half an
hour a transform that simply killed every other solution I tried. So I
am happy with performance thank you. "
