I decided 6 months ago that I was going to use digester for everything XML.
I looked at Castor and the Digester and Castor seemed rather complex. I also
will always favour an apache product, and it seems that robert has a rule
that will do what I need. To boot, Craig is meticulous with the code that he
releases and is highly responsive to requests for change so I'm not really
interested in looking at Castor anymore.
