> Castor can actually also generate beans from an XML Schema too. There
> are three types of use of the Marshalling Framework in Castor:
> 1- you have an XML schema (or a DTD) and no object model: castor can
> generate a Java object model from the XML schema as well as a set of
> classes that will hold the XML information needed to validate the data
> read or write.
> 2- you have an existing object model and you want to
> read/write XML from
> it by customizing Castor: you can configure a mapping file that will
> hold the mapping information between an XML document and your object
> 3- you have a set of beans: Castor will introspect them to read/write
> You can also leverage those 3 approaches to fit your needs.
> More information on Castor is available at www.castor.org and will
> support JAXB in a future release.
It's worth mentioning that Castor also has the ability to store Java objects
in SQL database tables through the use of mapping files. If you're
