Yesterday a JSR (Java Specification Request) entitled "XML Data Binding"
was submitted to the Java Community Process.  From the description:

    The proposed specification will define an XML data-binding facility
    for the Java(tm) Platform.  Such a facility compiles an XML schema
    into one or more Java classes.  These automatically-generated classes
    handle the translation between XML documents that follow the schema
    and interrelated instances of the derived classes.  They also ensure
    that the constraints expressed in the schema are maintained as
    instances of the classes are manipulated.

An accompanying design note was also published on  For more
information please see
