I don't disagree with your thoughts on the value of end-to-end XML applications.

But I think, XML data binding frameworks are useful sometimes.

Please consider following example.

Say I have an object oriented application, where objects represent
concepts like bank, customers, accounts, transactions etc [1].

I get some XML data from somewhere, which contains information about
these entities [1]. I now need to populate my objects with this XML

How do I do this?

One option is, that I can parse XML using DOM or SAX and fill the
objects with data by hand.
But this could be difficult if XML is complex.

I think data binding is a good technique for this scenario.
