Saving XML data to database without entity classes.

I want to save XML document values into database. I am using Hibernate 3 with SQL Server Database in my application.
There are multiple issue:
1. Firstly I am trying to escape from marshaling XML to Java classes. Reason being that these XML can change frequently.
2. If I have to create Java entities then at least I don't to create respective hbm files.

Please help.

Whoa Cowboy!

Reason being that these XML can change frequently

Doesn't that imply that your underlying DB structure would change "frequently" also?

I don't to create respective hbm files

Who uses those anymore? Annotations are the way to go.

I know DB2 does, not sure about M$ SQL Server, but you might want to look into native XML support
embedded or provided by the database provider itself.
