I am pleased to announce the first public release of JXV.
JXV is a library which allows for Java objects to be given "XML Views", and for those views to be read back into objects. JXV supports both SAX and DOM output, and can read XML input from any SAX-compliant parser. Resulting DOM trees are dynamic, and reflect changes made to the object model even after they were created. JXV fully supports namespaces in it's XML views, and can correctly parse and read XML content with namespaces.
JXV uses a pluggable architecture which allows XML view factories to be configured and loaded at runtime. The JXV configuration mechanisms also leverage XML namespaces to allow the configurations for those different view factories to be inlined within the JXV configuration file. In this release, JXV comes pre-configured with view factories for JavaBeans, collections, array, and "flat objects" such as Strings, primitives, etc. These factories support a wide variety of configuration options, and are sufficient for most object models. Future versions of JXV will include pre-configured support for additional factories. JXV may also release special-purpose factories (such as ones providing views for RowSets, ResultSets and other JDBC structures) as extension packages.
JXV is open-source and freely available in both source and binary form. It is covered by an Apache-like license (see information at the project page). The JXV distribution contains a compiled binary version as well as a buildable "src" dir (Ant is required to use the build script).
