Hello everybody,

I've XML file which is very Hierarchical in structure and I was wondering can I use castor or jaxb for generating java classes. I tried to use Castor sourcegenerator but it created too many java files for XML file. I guess it created java file for all elements and attributes. My XML file looks like this:


and much more embeded structure. I guess I can not use the form of <ad value=" "/> for castor?

Please suggest me the simplest way of mapping XML to JAVA classes.

Thanks,
nanu

For any element if CASTOR/JAXB are creating classes then I can't afford that or am I doing something wrong?

But what do you want actually?
Castor or any other JAXB Implementator SHOULD create those helper classes. otherwise how will you fill in the data in the actual Java Objects?

What I could recommend to you is actually that You should investigate the requirements of the functionality and go on later even without JAXB.
-If the data structure is too complicated in the XSD, I find that Castor's Mappings are not 100% correct.
-Do you have to process each element you receive as XML, or just some few of them, in this case I advice you to use the simplest API ever created for XML Processing: the SAX.

REGARDS AND GOOD LUCK
