About Apache XMLBeans

XMLBeans is a tool that allows access to the full power of XML in a Java friendly way.
The idea is to take advantage of the richness and features of XML and XML Schema
and have these features mapped as naturally as possible to the equivalent Java
language and typing constructs.
