I've been looking at using XSteam as well, seems interesting, however
I have a need to serialize only a small number of objects so perhaps
the current implementation would do the trick as well. XStream seems
quite easy to use, may give it a god just for the fun of it.

If I have decoded an object from XML is there an automated way to tell
that the decoded object has a representing record in the database.
Just having a look all the objects after being decoded have NEW as a
Persistence State. I tried to also serialize the primary key during
the serialization process, but when decoding it, it still has
persistence state new.

Thank you
