Q: SW for parsing DTD's

For the project I'm currently working on, I need to parse DTD's and query
information like this:

- which elements are valid in a given context?
- which elements can contain an element of a certain type?

Now I'm looking for software that does the parsing for me (Java classe are
preferred) and provides a high-level interface.
The best I've found is IBM's "XML for Java". Everything I need is in the
class com.ibm.xml.parser.DTD. But unfortunately the license agreement ends 90
days after downloading :-(

Since I'm writing a program for my thesis it must run for more than 90 days

Do you know of any software that has similar functions as XML4J and that is
free for unlimited (non-profit) use?




PS: I've already checked the docs of Ælfred and XP, but that isn't exactly
what I'm looking for. XP looks fine if I use the low-level interface and
build on top of it; but that's still some work to do...
