How do I create a GML file?

Since GML is an XML dialect, I’d say the best way is to take your GML application schema and use JAX-B to generate an Object model from it, then parse the text format, transfer the data to the objext model and use JAX-B to marshal it to XML.

How do I use GML in ArcGIS?
