I am writing the JUnit testcases for my application. In the application there are complex VOs (Value objects) and TO objects which have arrayLists.Now i create an dummy XML from the dummy data, unmarshall it to create dummy object and then Compare it to the above actual object.

For comparing simple objects which have primitive types i can unmarshall the dummy XML to object and compare it. (with refletion API)
Same thing i am not able to do when there are Arraylists and arraylists within arraylists in an object.. When I try to unmarshall that, i dont get the converted object in proper format.

Is there any way I can unmarshal complex objects with 3 to 4 hierarchies so I can compare them and test???
