We have release Flexter 1.2.0 this week. We have added some significant new features and improvements.

Flexter now supports conversion of JSON to a database, text (CSV/TSV), and Hadoop/Spark (ORC, Parquet, Avro).

We now support the conversion of very large XML files of multi-GB sizes without any pre-processing.

We have made performance improvements to the core parser. Flexter has always been fast. 600 times faster than some ETL tools. We have made further performance improvements. Flexter 1.2.0 now runs 20 times faster than previous versions. We ran some tests on a small laptop with 2 CPU cores where we processed 500K of complex XML files based on the OTA standard in just under 10 minutes.

We now support conversion of OOXML, e.g. Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc.
