Java – Simple way to do Xml in Java

javaserializationxml

Is there is Simple way to read and write Xml in Java?

I've used a SAX parser before but I remember it being unintuitive, I've looked at a couple of tutorials for JAXB and it just looks complicated.

I don't know if I've been spoilt by C#'s XmlDocument class, but All I want to do is create an Xml Document that represents a a set of classes and their members (some are attributes some are elements).

I would look into serialization but the XML has to have the same format as the output of a c# app which I am reverse engineering into Java.

Best Solution

I recommend XOM. Its API is clear and intuitive.
