I do not pretend to solve the big picture and I would have used existing
products if they were mature enough (I hope I am not hurting anyone),
but I have developed a "quick hack to bind XML to objects" for one of my

The idea is to use a XSL transformation to preprocess the XML files into
something easy to interpret by a low level SAX parser which is updating
the objects through java.lang.reflect.

If you want to know more about this hack, I have published it on our web

along with simples examples
showing how :

1) A XML document is processed through a XSLT sheet into an XML
preprocessed actions definition file.
2) The data is binded into a "complex" object which can be either
transient or persistent (stored in a ozone OODB).
3) These objects can be XML aware and saved back into a XML document.
4) These objects can be used in a XSLT sheet (using XT).

Your comments and suggestions are welcome !
