You need to create following files for marshalling java object into XML using Spring with Xstream:

  1. Employee.java
  2. applicationContext.xml
  3. Client.java

Required Jar files

To run this example, you need to load:

  • Spring Core jar files
  • Spring Web jar files
  • xstream-1.3.jar

download all the jar files for spring including core, web, aop, mvc, j2ee, remoting, oxm, jdbc, orm etc.

download xstream-1.3.jar


Employee.java

If defines three properties id, name and salary with setters and getters.


applicationContext.xml
