Thanks James.

I would appreciate it if you can add the response you gave me below to the
Betwixt online FAQ. I have people asking me once in a while what tool to use
for java-xml mapping.

BTW, does betwixt unmarshall DOM nodes as well as JavaBeans?
How about JavaBeans with DOM nodes as attributes.
I know that JXPath works with DOM and JavaBeans alike.

I think Betwixt will be appropriate for implementing <xf:instance/> element
in the XMLForm framework of Cocoon 2.1. I plan to try it as soon as Betwixt
is released.
