  +			Where JAXP and Castor are strong is when you have a well agreed schema (XML
  +			Schema for Castor or a DTD in the case of JAXB, last time I looked) and want
  +			to auto-generate beans for parsing and processing the XML.

  +        <dd>
  +			Betwixt is strong is when you've already got the beans and just want a nice
  +			looking XML format to serialize/deserialize your beans. 
  +			Indeed with Betwixt you can just write your beans and not even worry
  +			about XML schemas and providing you follow a simple bean naming convention
  +			(the use of getter, setter and <i>adder</i> methods) you'll get nice looking
XML for free.

  +			In JDK1.4 there is a 
  +			<a href="http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/docs/guide/beans/changes14.html">long term
bean serialization</a> 
  +			mechanism which you can use. However Betwixt generates cleaner looking XML which can
be customized
  +			to your own look and feel. Long term bean serialization doesn't generate nice looking
XML.
