Take a look at MDSAX and Coins on the JXML.com site - www.jxml.com.
It sounds like it's pretty much exactly what you're looking for.
You specify the mapping from elements to classes in a ContextML
document, itself XML, and it builds a processing structure into
which you can feed your documents to build your classes.
The best part is that MDSAX/Coins handles all the weird work for you,
including reflection. You can even feed documents with different
vocabularies into the same structure by specifying a different ContextML
document. With MDSAX it's just document->Beans, while with Coins you
can go back from Beans->document.
