Anyone look at JiBX? it is released under the 3-clause BSD license.
http://jibx.sourceforge.net/jibx-license.html. It contains some code that
is uder the Apache 1.1 license which should be ok, and some code under XPP3
which is not listed by Apache, but appears to be based on the BSD license.

Concerning XPP3, clause 3 may be problematic because it is not directly in
the BSD 3 clause. This third clause is not the advertising clause found in
the BCD 4 clause, but it is similar as it applies to documentation, so that
could be a problem. Maybe legal should look at it and give a ruling.
Finally, XPP3 clauses 4 and 5 appear to my non-legal eyes to be the same
and equivalent to the BSD clause 3.
