> I am building a backend for Kismet. I want to store all information into a MySQL database to keep the collected information organized and easily retrievable. So far it works quite well, even tough there are still some design errors in my database setup.

The server this script is running on seems to be terribly slow, so I try to move away from this Perl based solution. I already started to write a XML2SQL converter in Java to speed up the whole process, but I'm bloody new to XML handling within Java.

That's an excellent idea, and I'm glad you're using the XML file :)

I would think perl would be much faster than java (less memory overhead, etc) for this, actually.

Thats all I had, I don't "do java" :P Keep up the good work though!
