How to Convert CSV Files to XML Files using Java

When you’re looking for a flexible, nested data format rather than the flat, tabular layout that CSV files provide, XML is the way to go. Our CSV to XML conversion API makes it easy to perform this common operation automatically — all you need to do is follow instructions below to structure your API call in Java (and register a free account on our website to get your Cloudmersive API key).

Let’s begin by installing the Java SDK with Maven. Copy in the below references first; these belong in the pom.xml repository and dependency respectively:

After that, let’s add in our import classes:

Now you can complete the call by including the remaining code block:

All that’s left now is to input your API key where denoted in the documentation, and you’re all set. You can also optionally include a Boolean to specify if the first row of your CSV table should be used as the label for the columns.
