jdbc ResultSet to XML

Posted on 2008-10-30
Last Modified: 2008-11-18
HI all,
        I want to convert the ResultSet returned after running the query "SELECT * FROM TABLE" into a XML file. Please suggest me the simplest way to do it. If possible, some automatic means of it.
        If nothing works out then I wont mind hardcoding the XML document, before I put if all the values in it from the resultset, for this I need a sample code. please help me out with it from the basic level.

You could serialize an object to xml.  If you load the Recordset xml data into a Serializable Java object.

I am sorry I didnt mention the complete Scenario. I dont want a dump of XML. I have to feed that XML file into Fusion Charts, so that I can display it one the JSP pages for the website.

You can still use the Serializer, but instead of serializing to a file you can serialize to a stream which loads it into memory.  

Here is a way to serialize an Account object to a stream.   You would need to do the same thing using the xml serialization to a stream.  Then you can pass it wherever you want.

    protected Object clone() throws CloneNotSupportedException {
            ByteArrayOutputStream byteOut=new ByteArrayOutputStream();
            ObjectOutputStream objectOut=new ObjectOutputStream(byteOut);
            ByteArrayInputStream byteIn=new ByteArrayInputStream(byteOut.toByteArray());
            ObjectInputStream objectIn=new ObjectInputStream(byteIn);
            return objectIn.readObject();
        }catch(Throwable t){
            throw new RuntimeException("Error copying current object data: " + t.getMessage(),t);
myObject =(Account) this.clone();
