As I wrote in response to Anthony Coates on "If SAX == lex...", FOP generates application classes on the basis of a schema-like description of attributes. I'm moving towards actually using the W3C schema language, but with extensions that enable me to say things like "in the absence of an explicit value for this attribute, compute a value on the basis of that attribute". Although it is an implementation issue, I'm actually just using XSLT to go from high-level descriptive schema-like XML to Java source. Amongst other things, I'm excited about the opportunities this provides for literate programming. While I'm working on this specifically for FOP, most of what I'm working on in generic. My plan is for it to be possible to take the XML description of properties and generate (via XSLT): Java source, human readable documentation and a normal schema.
