Hmmmm. Where do I download the class from? I tried every variation on
the URL you gave that I could think of, but couldn't find it anywhere,
nor could I find it by searching the community process Web pages. Note
that other specs are simply downloadable via links from the Java
Community Process page

Of course, I've just looked at the Data Binding home page again and
noticed that it's status is "JSR Approved". I had originally thought
this meant that the spec was done, but now realize it only means the
request for the spec has been approved.

On the other hand, I keep running across references to data binding on
various Web sites, which makes me think that the spec is actually
written and perhaps awaiting review pending changes to the schema spec.
If this is the case, does anybody know if it's possible to get a copy of
the spec?
