Original json-lib

This code

XMLSerializer serializer = new XMLSerializer();
serializer.setTypeHintsEnabled(false);

JSON jsonRepresentation = serializer.readFromFile( "file.xml" );

String xml = serializer.write( jsonRepresentation );
System.out.writeToReadme(xml)

will render:

AutoExpand

This code

XMLSerializer serializer = new XMLSerializer();
serializer.setTypeHintsEnabled(false);
serializer.setPerformAutoExpansion(true);

JSON jsonRepresentation = serializer.readFromFile( "file.xml" );

String xml = serializer.write( jsonRepresentation );
System.out.writeToReadme(xml)
