Apache Commons Digester is a powerful library for this if you only need the XML-->Java direction. If you need both directions, then the JAXB API can help.

Hi,

You can even try Apache's XmlBeans which easily converts the xml in to java objects.

You can use JAXB to read xml and set values in java object. For using jaxb , you need to create xsd files.

There are multiple sites which will tell you how to create xsd files.

Actually depends on how complex your xml is....if its very simple xml, then you can just parse the xml and create your object.
If its complex, then JAXb would be a better option, for creating an xsd, there are tools available which make it simpler ( Altova's XMLSpy is a good option for free trial)
