Error in opening large xml files (1 MB)

0 votes


I have large xml files (around 8 MB). I want ro generate graph (tree structure) from it.

1) When I tried to import large file (1 MB) (I selected XML+XSS in file type) I get error like "yEd has encountered the following error: java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException". Although it displays graph.

2) When I try to this displayed graph as GIF, PDF or any other format, I get an error saying "It exceeded maximum limit". So is there any way I can exceed this limit for handling large xml files ?

I look forward for your reply.

Thanks you.
