Again, that depends on what you mean by "framework".

in fact, i have the data in csv format from other system, and we need to write a app to transform it to xml format, i have the xml schemas for several formats, what we need to do is just to define some mapping machanism to implement the transformation programmably.
so i think first we need a program to create a empty xml file(have the well formed structure, but have not data) following the defination of the xml schema, then define the mappings to fill the empty xml file. but i find it is hard to find a mechanism to generate xml file from its schema by java.

can you help to this case?

Note that a schema probably does NOT define a unique XML document - many structures can be legal. For example with repeating elements.

This toolkit has some examples of various flat file to XML conversions.
