Mapping Java Objects to XML and Relational Databases

Abstract

The need for good tools to map Java Objects and XML is growing by the minute. The fact that XSD has overtaken DTD as a way of describing XML formats clears the way for an intelligent discussion of “O-X Mapping”. A lot of developers assume that the challenges of O-X are hardly different from those faced by O-R. In fact, because of the highly aggregated nature of XML data, the challenges are significantly different. This presentation will overview the challenges faced in both the O-R and O-X worlds and draw upon the parallels and differences.
