You'd submit the form to a servlet which could gather the submitted data and write it out in XML format.

I've moved this to the Servlets forum.

Hi Keerthi,
Try to use XSLT engine in java. This is the way you can convert any HTML to XML or other document type easily. Even though it requires some learning curve but good for you in future.

Hope this helps
I agree. Here's the link:
