We are looking for a too that will map XML data to domain entity POJOs ( designed based on relational model ). We are looking for tool(s) that will do this job; performance is our concern; Please provide all your inputs ; we want to make this decision fast

Note: Hibernate is out backend/persistence layer

Thanks
Raees

Actually Hibernate can do it too, and so can JAXB. I suggest JAXB, you can have both Hibernate and JAXB annotations on your Entity classes.

I guess you are not understanding!!

hibernate can save/retrieve POJOS ; it can't map xml data to POJOs.

As with JAXB; yes it can bind xml data to the specific classes generated from the schema; but not to the classes that are my domain models

Now you might say why don't you assign from one to the other; which is old school ; what I want it to specify a mapping from the xml tags to my class properties and map it at runtime !

There are JAXB implementations that support mapping XML to an existing object model, I believe that JAXB 2.0 requires this.

For example the EclipseLink (incubation) MOXy JAXB implementation allows this. Oracle TopLink also allows this through JAXB.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
