XML MetaData Object Persistence (XMOP) is now available in beta form at

documentation is available at


XMOP, in final form, will be freely available open source. For development
purposes there are no redistribution rights associated with the beta. Please
send me any suggestions and/or modifications for inclusion in the final open
source version. The Java side of XMOP is being released now. I haven't had
sufficient time to get the C++ version code ready for public view :-) Part
of the issue regards the XML parser.  At the time it was written, XMOP used
MSXML IE4. This is not DOM compliant and I haven't had the time to update
things to IE5 which is DOM compliant. The other issue regards my use of
class libraries which I can't release as open source at the moment (I have
to extract releasable code from the libraries). The Java version uses IBM
XML4J and JDK 1.1.6+. This can be obtained from

My apologies for the delay, it's just been a packaging issue. Comments and
suggestions are welcome.
