I want to have short names for classes, now i can do it with aliases
XStream x = new XStream();
Internally, XStream uses its
Mapper interface to handle the mapping of classes and fields to their corresponding names in the XML. There are a large number of implementations of this interface. The
XStream class itself can take a
Mapper in its constructor. You might want to check out the source code of that class to see which Mapper implementation it uses by default, and then write your own implementation that automatically does your aliasing for you.
ClassAliasingMapper looks useful, for example.
