Subject Re: Which Java binding tool to use across Geronimo
Date Sun, 09 Nov 2003 00:47:43 GMT
I've worked with the JAXB RI earlier this autumn, and didn't think much of it.
I also looked into JaxMe2, which is working on implementing an open source
version of JAXB, but it also wasn't there yet.  So we've been relying on our own
binding mechanisms lately, which isn't perfect but could be a whole lot worse.
There's a lot of room for growth in that area.
