Some time ago I developed a Java package that can be used to transform fixed sequential files to and from XML.

So if you are in a position where you have to convert sequential data, like work files from a mainframe, then this package might be useful.

There is one odd thing… you need to describe the layout of the sequential file with a syntax that is derived from Natural (very much like the way you need to describe the interface with EntireX DCOM, for those who are familiar with EntireX Communicator).

I have released this package to the open source community. If you are interested, then have a look at http://xml2sequential.sourceforge.net/index.htm.

Errata: I meant EntireX DCOM Wrapper of course. Sorry.
