Just enquiring on reading in an xml file and mapping to java objects, which way is better, JAXP and Xerces or JAXB on a JEE5 application?

JAXB is now part of Java 6 so it's easier to use than having to configure JEE.

I've just started using it, and while it's a bit cantankerous, it's a lot better (in my opinion) than having to roll your own.
