Castor is a XML data binding framework with support for mapping both between XML and Java objects and between Java objects and relational databases. This makes it very suitable for loading XML into Java applications built on relational databases. Castor uses Java reflection to figure out how to map Java objects to XML, and to reverse the process. A mapping file can also be used to describe the mapping, but it cannot cover all cases. Castor can make use of an XML Schema to improve the mapping.
