This is more of a comment than a question. I just started using the Castor project (http://castor.exolab.org) and think it's very interesting. The Castor project implements the XML Data Binding specification on Sun's web site. XML Data binding allows you to create XML from Java objects and Java Objects from XML very easily. Simply execute the Castor program and pass your XML Schema as a parameter to the program and the Castor program creates the necessary Java classes. You can then use the Java classes to create new objects and call objectXYZ.marshal() to create an XML representation of the Java object. Pretty cool stuff.

Some excellent articles on Data Binding can be found at IBM's web-site. These articles are by Brett McLaughlin, the author of "Java and XML".
Very stuff

Thank you very much for the information on XML data binding.
I was searching for information on XML data binding. I could get hardly one or two articles.
Article by Brett McLaughlin in IBM website is good.
Some articles are in http://java.sun.com/xml/white-papers.html

Another product for XML Data binding - Breeze XML studio from www.breezefactor.com
I understand that it is a visual developer tool, generates Java classes from XML Schema.
