RE: HashMap in an XML document
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 Reflection(java.lang.reflect.*). 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.

Do you mean perhaps that you have some data in a java HashMap and you want to represent the same data in XML? Michael Kay Software AG home: Michael.H.Kay@n... work: Michael.Kay@s...
