how to parse xml to java object? [closed]

JAXB is an ideal solution. But you do not necessarily need xsd and xjc for that. More often than not you don’t have an xsd but you know what your xml is. Simply analyze your xml, e.g.,

<customer id="100">

Create necessary model class(es):

public class Customer {

    String name;
    int age;
    int id;

    public String getName() {
        return name;

    public void setName(String name) { = name;

    public int getAge() {
        return age;

    public void setAge(int age) {
        this.age = age;

    public int getId() {
        return id;

    public void setId(int id) { = id;


Try to unmarshal:

JAXBContext jaxbContext = JAXBContext.newInstance(Customer.class);
Unmarshaller jaxbUnmarshaller = jaxbContext.createUnmarshaller();
Customer customer = (Customer) jaxbUnmarshaller.unmarshal(new File("C:\\file.xml"));

Check results, fix bugs!
