Spring Boot – RESTful Web Service with POST Request in XML Example

In this article I will am going to show you how to read XML data from REST request using Spring Boot. As I told you in the previous articles, spring boot by default support reading and producing the JSON data. But for any XML support we have to include jackson-dataformat-xml dependency.

xml dependency

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.fasterxml.jackson.dataformat</groupId>
    <artifactId>jackson-dataformat-xml</artifactId>
</dependency>

SpringBootRestfulPostXML.java

package com.java4s.app;

import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;

@SpringBootApplication
public class SpringBootApp {
    public static void main(String[] args) {

        SpringApplication.run(SpringBootApp.class, args);

    }
}

Customer.java

package com.java4s.model;

public class Customer {

    private int custNo;
    private String name;
    private String country;

    public Customer() {

    }

    public Customer(int custNumber, String name, String country) {
        this.custNo = custNumber;
        this.name = name;
        this.country = country;
    }

    public int getCustNo() {
        return custNo;
    }

    public void setCustNo(int custNo) {
        this.custNo = custNo;
    }

    public String getName() {
        return name;
    }

    public void setName(String name) {
        this.name = name;

    public String getCountry() {
        return country;

SpringJava4sController.java

package com.java4s.app.controller;

import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.PostMapping;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestBody;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RestController;

import com.java4s.model.Customer;

@RestController
public class SpringJava4sController {

    @PostMapping(path = "/save-cust-info")
    public String customerInformation(@RequestBody Customer cust) {

        /* You can call your DAO logic here.
         * For time being I am printing the customer data just to show the POST call is working.
         */

        return "Customer information saved successfully ::." + cust.getCustNo() + " " + cust.getName() + " " + cust.getCountry();
    }
}

application.properties

server.contextPath=/spring-boot-restful-post-xml

Output

Run the application and open http://localhost:8080/spring-boot-restful-post-xml/save-cust-info in Postman.

Request:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<customer>
