I understand, though I would like to find a common binding framework 
which the entire project could use.

Take for example if there was a WAR deployer which took one of these 
objects (not a URL to an XML file or whatever), then you could 
programatically install web-apps with out having to deal with XML at 

It sounds like this is possible with XMLBeans, though it would still be 
better IMO if it XML was not a dependency, so for embedded solutions 
which do not need or want any XML processing we could drop those 
dependencies to provide a smaller footprint.
