Java code to convert JSON to XML

I am looking for Java code that I can use (i.e. open source) to convert a JSON string into XML.

I don't care so much about having a lot of control on how the conversion is done, as once I have XML, I can easily transform it with XSLT.

Any recommendation?

If you need I also have references for JavaScript or XSLT2 libraries that do that

Here's one possibility: http://www.p6r.com/articles/2008/05/06/xslt-and-xpath-for-json/

But this is perhaps simpler: http://www.virtual-tech.net/resources/json2xml.html. It contains a small JavaScript snippet (yes, I know you use Java), that shows how to parse the JSON code into XML. See the source of that page (the popup shows only the output).

@abel, thank you for responding. I have been looking at the two links you mentioned:

1) http://www.p6r.com/articles/2008/05/06/xslt-and-xpath-for-json/

The P6R code in C++ , so that won't work for me, but maybe other people reading this will find it useful.

2) http://www.virtual-tech.net/resources/json2xml.html

This is some very simple (= good!) code that uses Prototype. I don't fancy Prototype, but maybe will run with the idea. (I would have preferred a more robust, server-side solution to this.)

basically, the reason I mentioned, is that the same technique could be applied using java (or c# or whatever) on the server side. The simplicity was chosen because it makes it easier to adopt it for yourself, at least, that was the intention :)

@Gertone,Jettison seems the way to go. Also see this example from the XStream FAQ:

http://xstream.codehaus.org/faq.html#JSON

I will some experiments with this, and will report on it.
