Abstract

Disclosed is a method and a program to generate arbitrary XML from a Java Hashtable. In Java Hashtable, first the DTD file name is provided. Secondary, all the values for XML tags are stored in name value pairs (NVPs) format. The Generator uses DTD to construct XML and put the value for each tag in the XML from Hashtable, and finally outputs a XML message. This disclosure will give Java programmers a chance to write applications to generate XML messages without understanding any XML specification. What he should know is the Java Hashtable containing key and values, which will be put into XML message. Input: Java Hashtable (Containing Name Value Pairs)
