Good afternoon everyone. Just wanted to share with you some information
about a new technology that will likely be of interest to the group. BEA
Systems recently announced XMLBeans, a technology innovation that helps
developers be more productive when working with XML data/documents in Java.
For the first time, developers can gain a familiar and convenient Java
object-based view of their XML data without losing access to the richness of
the original, native XML structure.
Here's a little info on how it works: in cases where a schema definition is
available, XMLBeans provides a set of Java classes to offer strongly-typed
Java access to underlying XML data. Importantly, XMLBeans will support 100%
of schema. And where schema is not the starting point, users can use a
convenient cursor API and XQuery interface to get fine-grained control over
all XML information. In either case, the underlying XML information is
always preserved with full fidelity.
If you're interested in learning more or starting to experiment with the
hosted-service version of XMLBeans, you can check out:
