GUI client talk to servlet

I am trying to build an client/server application with swing app as client and servlet as server. I need some help on how to let swing app talk to my servlet residing in somewhere like In brief, swing app will send xml to ServletServer. Then ServletServer will process the xml and send back response xml to GUI client. I think I should send serialized xml object as request attribute and in return my servlet sends back serialized xml object back to my GUI client. But I cannot transfer this idea into actual code. I do not want to use applet as GUI client, however. Many thanks in advance for you help.
