Creating a Metamoldel serializer for XML
To do that is quite easy, you have a interface available since 2002 on framework, its name is IXmlMetamodel. Then I did an implementation using XStream tool, which you can see in the following code:...
XStream is the kind of project which is so easy and so great, that if somebody try give a presenation about that could be hard spend more than five minutes.

Here I will take a piece of tests of my evaluations:
xml = new XStream();
