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 . I get some XML data from somewhere, which contains information about these entities . I now need to populate my objects with this XML data. 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. -- Regards, Mukul Gandhi
