I have an xml like this :

<Zoo>
<Lion>
<Zebra>
....
</Zoo>

----------------------------------
And on my java project , i have an abstract class "Animal" and all the animals (like lion , zebra ) extends from it.

How can i unmarshal my xml to my class "Zoo" that contains a "List<Animal> animalList".



I hope, i explained my scenario clearly. Can someone please help me. So far i am unable to successfully unmarshal my xml file to List of Animals. Please help

Why are you saying "unmarshal"?

We usually speak of parsing XML so it sounds like there are some additional requirements you are not describing.

Bill , i am using JAXB that is why i used the terminology of "un-marshalling".

If you can help me that what sort of Annotations (XML ELEMENT or INTERCEPTOR ) i need to write in order to map all the tags (like lion , zebra blah blah) to my list of animals.
