Looks like an underspecified question.  If that's some form of XML,
then all you need is (for example) an AddType directive to serve
it as a suitable type, such as text/xml or application/xml.

Erm "the java servlet"?  That's jumping to a _very_ heavyweight
conclusion.   If you want to convert proprietary XML to HTML then a
Namespace handler or even an XSLT transform make much more sense.

Either you're serving it or you're converting it to something else
like HTML.  AFAICS the OP didn't specify.
