Hi I am invoking Restful web service in Java. The message body is simple xml


and the server side, i have POJO class for this.

public class Account {
private String name;
private String accNo;
public String getName() {
return name;
public void setName(String name) { = name;
public String getAge() {
return accNo;
public void setAge(String age) {
this.accNo = age;

What i want to know is how to map payload(xml) and pojo in Resource class's method (Restful).


public AccountDetails postAccountXML(Account account)
return ...
This is not working, please tell me how can resolve in Restful. the mapping between soap message body(payload) and Account class mapping is working

That's where JAXB comes into play. See or search for "jaxb jersey java" for others tutorials.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
