How to convert a List Object in Java to XML?

I'm currently creating a web application and need to convert the Java List<Object> Type which results from a database select into an XML file. What is the most efficient way of doing this?


Thanks

One elegant way to do this is using XML serialization, but you can also build the xml yourself using loops and string concatenation.

I also recommend building the XML from actual DOM objects. This way you'll automatically ensure that everything is legal, and have a simple support for hierarchy.
You can see a sample of creating an XML structure and converting it to string here:
