Nux

 Home Page Home Page

Categories: XML

Author: Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Latest version: 1.3
Added 2005-08-04

Open-source toolkit that provides support for XQuery and XPath, inplace updates of XML documents, and full-text search.

Features include:
- XQuery/XPath: standards-compliant W3C XQuery and XPath support for XOM (XML Object Model).
- In-place update: in-place morphing for use as an XQuery/XPath insert, update and delete facility; particularly useful for structurally small tree transformations without requiring (potentially huge) XML tree copies.
- Full-text search: fuzzy similarity queries for on-the-fly matchmaking in realtime streaming applications combining structured and unstructured queries. Arbitrary Lucene fulltext queries can be run from Java or from XQuery/XPath/XSLT via an extension function.
- Pooling: pools and factories for documents, XQueries, XSL Transforms, as well as document builders that validate against various schema languages, including W3C XML Schemas, DTDs, RELAX NG, Schematron, etc.
- Binary XML: optional serialization and deserialization of XOM XML documents to and from a custom binary XML data format (bnux format), without loss or change of any information.
- Streaming: for simple and complex continuous queries and/or transformations over very large or infinitely long XML input, a streaming path filter API combines XQuery and XPath support with filtering.
- JAXB and HTML: conversion from XOM to JAXB and vice-versa, serving as an intermediary for XML <--> Object mapping tools. XQueries over ill-formed HTML.

Beck

 Home Page Home Page

Categories: Object-relational mapping, XML

Latest version: 0.17
Added 2005-04-07

Maps between Java objects and XML.
The mapping is configurable via an XML configuration file. It can be extended by adding Java software to Beck's framework.

Beck isn't a binding tool. It doesn't generate Java classes from XML schema, nor generate XML schema from Java classes. Beck assumes you already have Java classes to contain your data. Beck doesn't require an XML schema, but if you have one it can help Beck map to the XML you want.

stxx

 Home Page Home Page

Categories: MVC, XML

Latest version: 1.3
Added 2005-06-16

Struts for transforming XML with XSL (stxx) is an extension of the struts framework to support XML and and XML transforming technologies like XSL without changing the functionality of struts.

stxx sits on top of Struts, extending its existing functionality to allow Action classes to return XML that will be transformed by technologies like XSL and Velocity (Anakia) . The idea behind stxx is to remove the need to use JSP and tag libraries for the presentation layer of the Struts framework. However, stxx does not force you to go the XML route, both technologies will work side by side. Struts for transforming XML with XSL (stxx) is an extension of the struts framework to support XML and XSL without changing the functionality of struts.

Features :

* Support for both the Struts 1.0.x and Struts 1.1.x architectures
* Enhancements to the forwarding functionality of Struts to provide XML transformations based on the content produced by the action and any custom criteria like the user-agent of the client to render HTML/XML/PDF/more
* Automatic serialization of the ActionErrors, Struts Resources, ActionForms and Requests object for use in your XML document
* The ability to write your own transformation classes to make the XML transform to output type you want
* Easy migration path to Cocoon

XMLBeans

 Home Page Home Page

Categories: XML

Author: The Apache Software Foundation

Latest version: 2.2.0
Added 2005-03-22Updated 2006-07-24

XML-Java binding tool.
The idea behind XMLBeans is that you can take advantage the of XML and XML Schema and have their features mapped to equivalent Java language and typing constructs. XMLBeans uses XML Schema to compile Java interfaces and classes that you can then use to access and modify XML instance data. Using XMLBeans is similar to using any other Java interface/class, you will see things like getFoo or setFoo just as you would expect when working with Java. While a major use of XMLBeans is to access your XML instance data with strongly typed Java classes there are also API's that allow you access to the full XML infoset (XMLBeans keeps full XML Infoset fidelity) as well as to allow you to reflect into the XML schema itself through an XML Schema Object model.

Features include:
- Full XML Schema support: fully supports XML Schema and the corresponding Java classes provide constructs for all of the major functionality of XML Schema.
- Full XML Infoset fidelity: when unmarshalling an XML instance the full XML infoset is kept and is available to the developer. This is critical because because of the subset of XML that is not easily represented in Java. For example, order of the elements or comments might be needed in a particular application.

XStream

 Home Page Home Page

Categories: Persistence - Data-tier, XML

Latest version: 1.2.1
Added 2005-08-09Updated 2007-01-23

Library to serialize objects to XML and back again.

Features include:
- A high level facade is supplied that simplifies common use cases.
- Most objects can be serialized without need for specifying mappings.
- Designed for speed and low memory footprint, making it suitable for large object graphs or systems with high message throughput.
- No information is duplicated that can be obtained via reflection. This results in XML that is easier to read for humans and more compact than native Java serialization.
- Requires no modifications to objects: Serializes internal fields, including private and final. Supports non-public and inner classes. Classes are not required to have default constructor.
- Full object graph support: Duplicate references encountered in the object-model will be maintained. Supports circular references.
- Integrates with other XML APIs. By implementing an interface, XStream can serialize directly to/from any tree structure (not just XML).
- Customizable conversion stategies: Strategies can be registered allowing customization of how particular types are represented as XML.
- Error messages: When an exception occurs due to malformed XML, detailed diagnostics are provided to help isolate and fix the problem.

JaxMe 2

 Home Page Home Page

Categories: Persistence - Data-tier, XML

Author: The Apache Software Foundation

Latest version: 0.5.2
Added 2005-03-22

Open source implementation of JAXB, the specification for Java/XML binding.

A Java/XML binding compiler takes as input a schema description (in most cases an XML schema but it may be a DTD, a RelaxNG schema, a Java class inspected via reflection or a database schema). The output is a set of Java classes:
- A Java bean class compatible with the schema description. (If the schema was obtained via Java reflection, then the original Java bean class.)
- An unmarshaller that converts a conforming XML document into the equivalent Java bean.
- Vice versa, a marshaller that converts the Java bean back into the original XML document.
In the case of JaxMe, the generated classes may also:
- Store the Java bean into a database. Preferrably an XML database like eXist, Xindice, or Tamino, but it may also be a relational database like MySQL.
- Query the database for bean instances.
- Implement an EJB entity or session bean with the same abilities.

DataDirect XML Converters

 Home Page Home Page

Categories: XML

Author: DataDirect Technologies

Latest version: 3.0
Added 2007-05-21

Components that dynamically transform EDI and flat files to XML.

DataDirect XML Converters provide bi-directional, programmatic access to virtually any non-XML file (EDI, flat files, etc.). XML Converters allow developers to stream any non-XML data as XML to XML processing components or to your own applications. They support StAX, SAX, DOM and I/O streaming interfaces, and so can be embedded directly for translation purposes, or as part of a chain of programs including XSLT and XQuery, or even inside XML pipelines.
Converters are bidirectional. Formats supported are EDI (EDIFACT, X12, EANCOM, IATA) and flat file formats (CSV, tab-separated, binary, dBase, and others).

JiBX

 Home Page Home Page

Categories: XML

Latest version: 1.2.1
Added 2005-10-05Updated 2009-10-03

Framework for binding XML data to Java objects.
JiBX works with existing classes, using a flexible mapping definition file to determine how data objects are translated to and from XML. It allows you to start from existing Java code and generate an XML schema, start from an XML schema and generate Java code, or bridge your existing code to a schema that represents the same data.
The JiBX framework handles all the details of converting your data to and from XML based on your instructions.
JiBX uses binding definition documents to define the rules for how your Java objects are converted to or from XML (the binding). At some point after you've compiled your source code into class files you execute the first part of the JiBX framework, the binding compiler. This compiler enhances binary class files produced by the Java compiler, adding code to handle converting instances of the classes to or from XML. After running the binding compiler you can continue the normal steps you take in assembling your application.
The second part of the JiBX framework is the binding runtime. The enhanced class files generated by the binding compiler use this runtime component both for actually building objects from an XML input document (called unmarshalling, in data binding terms) and for generating an XML output document from objects (called marshalling). The runtime uses a parser implementing the XMLPull API for handling input documents, but is otherwise self-contained.
