The Apache Commons Team has released Digester 2.0, a SAX-based XML to object mapper, designed primarily for parsing XML configuration files though it has other uses too. Digester is configured through an XML to Java object mapping module, which triggers actions whenever a pattern of nested XML elements is recognized. Versionb 2.0 now supports W3C XML Schema validation and XInclude. However it is backwards incompatible with Digester 1.x due to other internal cleanups. The Commons Projects has also released version 1.8.1, a compatible bug fix release.
