 Template Engines > Velocity > Object List to XML

Object List to XML 

Apache Velocity is a free, simple and powerful template engine written in 100% pure Java. This requires the libraries velocity-1.7.jar, oro-2.0.8.jar, commons-lang-2.4.jar, commons-collections-3.2.1.jar, commons-logging-1.1.jar, log4j-1.2.12.jar to be in classpath. The following example shows generating a simple XML in Velocity.

File Name  :  
/VELOCITY001/config/xml.vm 

File Name  :  
com/bethecoder/tutorials/velocity/common/Student.java 
   
package com.bethecoder.tutorials.velocity.common;

public class Student {

  private String name;
  private int age;
  private String hobby;

  public Student() {
  }

  public Student(String name, int age, String hobby) {
    super();
    this.name = name;
    this.age = age;
    this.hobby = hobby;
  }

  public String getName() {
    return name;
  }
  public void setName(String name) {
    this.name = name;
  }
  public int getAge() {
    return age;
  }
  public void setAge(int age) {
    this.age = age;
  }
  public String getHobby() {
    return hobby;
  }
  public void setHobby(String hobby) {
    this.hobby = hobby;
  }
  
  public String toString() {
    return "Student[name = " + name + ", age = " + age + ", hobby = " + hobby + "]";
  }
}

        Template template = ve.getTemplate("xml.vm");
        
        /**

        Student std1 = new Student("Sriram"2"Chess");

        List<Student> students = Arrays.asList(std1, std2, std3);
        
        VelocityContext context = new VelocityContext();
        context.put("students", students);

        /**

        StringWriter swOut = new StringWriter();
        template.merge(context, swOut);
        
        System.out.println(swOut);
  }
}
   

It gives the following output,
