Hi all,

I have a method like :

In this method I would like to construct a xml message from the 3 parameters and they should be validated against xml schema and sent to some other application.

My question is, how can we generate xml on the fly from java variables and validate it as well.

I would do XML creation with plain print statements - no need to validate with a schema if you control the exact output in your own program and it will be much faster.

How to send the result? That depends on how the other application is listening.

Needless to say, there are many more complicated ways to do this - see for example the java.bean package XMLDecoder and XMLEncoder classes.

I agree. Here's the link:
