Hello To All !
I am a XML beginner and I need to find a some API to transform
an XML data (fully String presented document like this :
- <Listing>
<Name>Mary Smith</Name>
- <Address>
<StreetNum>888</StreetNum>
<StreetName>Broadway</StreetName>
<City>Somewhere</City>
<State>FL</State>
<Zip>87654</Zip>
- <PhoneNumber>
<AreaCode>222</AreaCode>
<Exchange>333</Exchange>
<Number>4444</Number>
</PhoneNumber>
</Address>
</Listing>
- <Listing>
) represented in java.lang.String to Element and vice versa .
I've tried some advantageous way using the JAXP compatible Xercer parser API's .
(http://www.ibiblio.org/xml/books/xmljava/chapters/ch13s02.html#IndentedFibonacci.java)
It's a good way to parse Element to String via XMLSerializer ..
But my question is : Is some API's exist to MAP somehow existing Java Object (Class) to Defined XML structure and vice versa for Automatical parsing from XML to Java Object and From Java Object to XML ?
If you know what I am talking about please respond to mmarat@hotmail.com .

Thank you ,

Marat

There are several APIs for doing this. Sun and the Java Community Process are developing one called JAXB - Java Api for Xml Binding. See:
http://java.sun.com/xml/jaxb/
I have been experimenting with it and found it pretty easy and fast.
Another API is called CASTOR - I have not used it.

The know open source products: caster / JSX. The JSX is gnu licensed, if you use it, you need make your product open source or pay for it. Do a google search, they are easy to be found.
