XML News from Thursday, January 12, 2006

Sun has posted the maintenance review change log for JSR 206: Java API for XML Processing specification. According to Norm Walsh, "the biggest change is support for StAX Sources and Results." Comments are due by February 8.

Dennis Sosnoski has posted the first beta of JiBX 1.1, yet another open source (BSD license) framework for binding XML data to Java objects using your own class structures. It falls into the custom-binding document camp as opposed to the schema driven binding frameworks like JaxMe and JAXB. 1.1 adds support for StAX input and output.
