Try JAXB. Alltough it hasn't been released officially yet, you can download an early access edition, which has been around for quite a while. It only supports plain old DTD's though. If you need Java binding based on XML Schema, and if you want it for free, you could consider Castor. If you want a commercial version, you should consider XML Breeze (or Breeze XML?) Another nice option is jnerd's xml2java.
I'm using a great package called ElectricXML from www.themindelectric.com.
It does basic data binding and SOAP object encoding of Java objects
The two I hear talked about the most are Castor and Zues. I have used Castor and it is a great tool.
