There are a couple of good articles dealing with XML and Java on the www.javaworld.com site. One looks particularly interesting on data validation using XML. The article is part 1 of a 3 part series, so the rest will come in the near months. Has anyone tried anything like what that article is proposing?

Brian,
I am in the process of implementing a system such as that now where i will use XML to define the structured document and an XML schema to support the validation of the document.
Another way to handle the validation issues is to create tables of the rules. Which is really what the XML is.
