I've written a set of Java packages, called XML-DBMS, for transferring data 
between XML documents and relational databases. XML-DBMS views the XML 
document as a tree of objects (element types are usually classes, and 
PCDATA and attributes are properties of those classes) and map these to the 
database with an object-relational mapping. Included in XML-DBMS is an 
XML-based mapping language used to define the object view and map it to the 
database. XML-DBMS is free for all uses and comes with source code. For 
more info and download, see:
