Subject Re: ibatis to return xml instead of arraylist (of hashmap).
Date Fri, 16 Mar 2007 03:13:41 GMT

You could write a row handler to take the returned maps and a string
builder to create xml.

One class would handle all of your requirements.

Something like this is close - testing is an exercise left to the reader. ;-)

public class MapToXmlRowHandler
        implements RowHandler
    private String wrapper;
    private String item;
    private StringBuilder builder;

    public MapToXmlRowHandler(String wrapper, String item) {
        this.wrapper = wrapper;
        this.item = item;
        builder = new StringBuilder();

    public void handleRow(Object object) {
        Map<String, Object> m = (Map<String, Object>) object;


        for(String key : m.keySet()){
            // todo: make sure these values are xml friendly


    public String getResultsAsXml(){
        StringBuilder result = new StringBuilder("<" + wrapper + ">")
        return result.toString();
