Subject Re: [digester] Digester vs xmlbean vs JAXB

I don't know a great deal about JAXB, but from what I've read, you need 
a schema to make it work.

I've found myself in a few situations where I needed a quick and easily 
customizable conversion from a bean to XML and back again.  After taking 
a few looks around at different packages, digester and betwixt always 
seem to be the simplest and fastest option.
