Subject [Digester] Digesting into a database
Date Sat, 06 Nov 2004 23:08:40 GMT

I have written a couple of rules and support classes for Commons 
Digester that help to abuse it in an interesting way. Instead of 
creating application objects, now the digester inserts rows into a JDBC 

At the current stage, the code _works for me_(TM). If you look at it too 
sharply, you may cut it into pieces. As yet it works with HSQLDB. 
Adaptation to another DBMS requires implementing an interface, which is 
no big deal presumably.

I'm not sure about the future of this thing. I don't promise to develop 
it any further. As is, the functionality has proven useful to me, 
possibly its useful to others, too.

With all these caveats in place, have a look at the (minimal) javadocs 
and get the source+binary zip at
