Here's an additional technique for processing flat file formats:
We've built a Java step processor to preprocess CSV files to XML with the use
of the Unidex XML Convert tool (http://www.unidex.com/xflat.htm). The tool
makes it easy to describe the input file format and how it should then convert
to a generic XML file (simple flat record structure). We then apply XSLT to
the generated intermediary XML to transform the content to the target schema.
The mechanism is straightforward and easy to configure so we've been using it
in a number of our commercial products.
