1) I assume that by "closing tags" you mean elements that contain child
elements (as opposed to elements that only contain attributes). Note
also that <foo a="aaa" b="bbb"/> means the same thing as <foo a="aaa"
b="bbb"></foo>, so the existince of closing tags alone doesn't mean

2) Castor should be able to handle element types that have empty and
non-empty content models. See the documentation for the Castor mapping
language to be sure.

I don't know if Castor supports namespaces. I would be very surprised if
it didn't.

If you have found an example of Castor mapping an element type
identified by its namespace URI -- I think that is what you mean by
"These XML
documents make use of URI NameSpaces incl.
http://www.w3.org/2000/10/XMLSchema"; -- then Castor supports namespaces.

P.S. If you have more questions, please ask them on the Castor mailing
list. The people there know much more about Castor than the people here.
