MOXy

Enables Java developers to efficiently bind Java classes to XML Schemas. MOXy implements JAXB allowing developers to provide their mapping information through annotations as well as providing support for storing the mappings in XML format. The many advanced mappings enable developers to handle the complex XML structures without having to mirror the schema in their Java class model.
