I know 2 ways:
1. Parse XML file using some parsing API, get data from it, display the data with HTML markup - better do first 2 things (parsing & retrieving data) in servlet & forward data to JSP for display.
2. Apply XSLT on XML to generate HTML markup.

First one is easy, IMO.

I think you should use xStream but it is not highly recomanded but if your xml file tags is fix then it is ok to use xStream class.

xStream.fromXML(stringXML) this will return object and you can store information using pojo and use that according to your need.

xStream



The OP never said the XMLs being passed to and fro were classes serialized as XML.

My jsp page is calling



Your JSP page should not call such things. It is a view. Do not parse XML in a JSP. The next person to maintain the code will thank you

Parse the XML with staX and attach whatever you want to display into one of the scopes.

please give me some sample code for calling http based api with xml file as request and reading the response from xml file in jsp.....



No one can do this. The calls can be web service over SOAP calls / Web services without SOAP / REST based invocations / Post based invocations that do not follow standards / Mutipart invocations that do not follow any standard etc etc. A client like the commons HTTP client *might* help. But unless you provide more information, the help you receive will be limited
