   RE: [xml-dev] HashMap in an XML document

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hi Michael,

    The purpose of my application is to invoke an API on the server, and the
user is going to tell which API at runtime.  I have to pass this information
regarding the API (which includes APINAME, APIRETURNTYPE, PARAMETERS and some
transaction attributes) in an XML document. On the server
side, the parser parses the information and invokes the appropriate API using
   The problem is that some APIs have complex arguments like Vector, HashMap
which needs to be passed using XML. If I have to extract each and every element
of HashMap to form a new element in the XML doc, it will be a big overhead. I
wanted to ask whether we can directly pass an Object (like HashMap, Vector) in
an XML document by some means.

You'll have to explain a lot more carefully what you mean. Do you mean
perhaps that you have some data in a java HashMap and you want to
represent the same data in XML?
