@Entity to XML

I have entity beans.
Now I need to make XML from collection of entity beans.
Is there any way to perform this easily? (I would use JAXB 2.0, but if I use JAXB I will have another set of data
objects that represent the xml, but I
already have this object hierarchy in my entity beans)
Can there be a direct transformation from entity beans to a jaxb / xml hierarchy?

There is a way. Take a look at the EclipseLink runtime project that supports mapping JPA entities to XML using JAXB (and additional APIs as well).

Pro JPA 2: Mastering the Java Persistence API
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
