Perhaps there is something in the water.  Digester
lools like a more advanced version of what I have
attempted.  The main difference is I don't write any
rules at all other than what I provided in the XML
fragment in my previous post.  I simply have to tell
the engine what tag will map to a specific object.  It
takes care of the rest.  I guess my strategy is more
minimalist and narrower in scope.  

I've seen APIs like Digester and don't mind them.  I
just didn't want the hassle of writing mapping rules,
whether in code or in a config file.  I've taken the
approach of letting code discover everything on its
own rather than have me tell it what to map what to.  

Thanks for the info.
