What is JATO ?? It is quite hard to keep the pace and learn about all these new acronyms - some half a dozen of them take birth every week Can you provide some links to JATO ??

Here is a link http://www.krumel.com/jato/index.html One of the features listed on the site is that it is built on JDOM. This is the summary from the index page: Jato is an open-sourced, XML based non-procedural language for transforming any XML document to/from any set of Java objects. Non-procedural languages describe the operations to perform, leaving the algorithms for implementing the operations to an interpreter. A Jato script expresses the relationships between XML elements and Java objects and frees the developer from writing iteration loops, recursive routines, error checking code, and many other error prone, verbose, and monotonous XML parsing chores.
JDOM is a library that is a replacement for and compatible with the existing DOM interface. JATO is a translator to create Java classes directly from XML. JATA is an open source version of what JAXB will do. Best wishes, - Mike

So JATO doesnt have capability of rendering XML document like JDOM does.Its only conversion of XML-to-Java and Java-to-XML so if we want to parse XML, needs to be done through DOM/SAX API's is it right..
