Digester is a simple XML data binding framework designed to make it easy to read data from XML configuration files to Java objects. It uses a configuration file defining mapping rules described using patterns that are designed to be implementable on top of SAX, while looking like XPath. If these patterns are not sufficient you can plug in the pattern engine of your choice.
Digester uses JAXP to find a SAX 2.0 parser.
