You are actually mixing up two kinds of XML parser. The SAX style parser makes a pass through an XML file, calling your custom code whenever it finds a tag or other important information. The DOM style builds a Document Object Model (DOM) in memory. Frequently, a SAX parser is at the core of the code that creates a DOM, but the DOM user does not see that.
There are plenty of parsers with source code - look at the
xml.apache.org site for one.
These parsers convert XML into Java - not the other way around. A program to convert Java code into XML would not be an XML parser.

Then what would it be called and how is it done. I want to be able to write Java that will become XML with different Schemas there is not a set one. My code should be able to be used for many types of schemas.
Thanks, mpap
