Using XML in Java

(1/2) > >>

Please tell me how to implement this.

i have no knowledge about this....plz mentioned it.......

XML is an enabling technology for the virtuous programmer. A basic XML parser does a great deal of work for the programmer, recognizing tokens, translating encoded characters, enforcing rules on XML file structure, checking the validity of some data values, and making calls to application-specific code, where appropriate. In fact, early standardization, combined with a fiercely competitive marketplace, has produced scores of freely available implementations of standard XML parsers in many languages, including C, C++, Tcl, Perl, Python, and, of course, Java.

The java.util.Properties class has build-in functionality to convert properties file into XML file or vice verses.

Convert properties file into XML file in JAVA

import java.util.Properties;
public class PropertiesXMLExample
    public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException
       Properties props = new Properties();
       props.setProperty("", "");
       OutputStream os = new FileOutputStream("c:/email-configuration.xml");
       props.storeToXML(os, "Support Email","UTF-8");

The above example will write the properties detail into a XML file “c:/email-configuration.xml“ as:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE properties SYSTEM "">
      <comment>Support Email</comment>
      <entry key=""></entry>

XML could be a all-purpose specification for making custom mark-up languages. Its primary purpose is to assist info systems share structured knowledge, significantly via the net, and it's used each to code documents and to set up knowledge.
