different takes on data binding

Some time ago, Kathleen Dollard showed how to generate classes from an XML Schema using XSLT. I dislike both schema and XSLT, but I would understand why someone would need to use both technologies and have respect for everybody that plunges in that hell. However all those technologies together might serve to describe the problem rather than the solution

Pull parsing examples, also a while ago, is often demonstrated as a fast way to do data binding. We can find Chris Fry's writeup on XML pull parsing. It seems
Pull parsing will be available in JDK6

This pull parsing stuff ultimately looks better than all other APIs, because all the other ones can be implemented on top of this one.
