                        abcd                    abcde
                        bcde                    bcdef

i want to generate an xml file like
<root>
<Names>
   <FIRSTNAME>abcd</FIRSTNAME>
   <LASTNAME>abcde</LASTNAME>
</Names>
<Names>
  <FIRSTNAME>bcde</FIRSTNAME>

Here are multiple ways to do this, choose the one that suits your need:

1) Create the XML as a String like StringBuffer b = new StringBuffer("<root>")
then loop for the values and append b.append("<FIRSTNAME>").append("abcd").append("</FIRSTNAME>")
& so on..

2) Create Java class called Names with two elements FIRSTNAME & LASTNAME, Create a list of this class with all values in a list called as root, then use JAXB to create a XML document from it
Here is a link to download the JAXB API http://java.sun.com/webservices/jaxb/

3) Use other APIs like XERCES to create XML document, see the below tutorial for code sample (Section 6.2)

try this (this solution is jdom based: http://www.jdom.org):


Connection connection = ... // create or get the connection.
        Statement statement = connection.createStatement();
        ResultSet result = statement.executeQuery("select * from table");
        Element root = new Element("root");
        while (result.next()) {
            Element node = new Element("Names");
            root.addContent(node);

            node.addContent(new Element("FIRSTNAME").setText(result.getString("FIRSTNAME")));
            node.addContent(new Element("LASTNAME").setText(result.getString("LASTNAME")));
        }

        Document doc = new Document(root);
        String generatedDocText = new XMLOutputter(Format.getPrettyFormat()).outputString(doc);
