Making It Easier To Work With XML in Java: Introducing "XMLBeans"

Making It Easier To Work With XML in Java: Introducing "XMLBeans"

(January 28, 2003) - Is there a better way to incorporate XML data to Java? BEA believes the answer is BEA XMLBeans. BEA is working to drive convergence within the enterprise by creating one common framework for business process modeling, application development, and enterprise J2EE development. Developed in line with this goal, BEA XMLBeans simplifies the process of incorporating XML data into Java applications.

What does Alan Williamson, editor-in-chief of Java Developer's Journal, make of XMLBeans? "At present, using XML in Java," Williamson declares, "can be kinda klunky, it had to be said--there is no doubt about that. So anything that opens up XML for the masses has my vote."

With the dramatic growth of XML-based applications such as Web services, accessing and manipulating XML documents from Java applications has become increasingly critical to the enterprise. Customary approaches to incorporating XML data with Java, such as using traditional DOM or SAX, are difficult and time-consuming. Other approaches to connecting Java data models and XML often result in a loss of data due to the fundamental differences between the two languages. This requires developers to re-code information and create custom linkages.

With BEA XMLBeans, developers no longer have to make these compromises. BEA XMLBeans gives developers a familiar and convenient Java object-based view of XML data. Unlike other Java "binding" solutions, BEA XMLBeans enable programmers to maintain the fidelity of raw XML data and still gain the productivity and flexibility benefits that Java provides.

"Leveraging the full richness of XML within Java has always been a great challenge, and BEA XMLBeans helps make this a reality while shielding developers from the underlying complexity," said Adam Bosworth, chief architect and senior vice president of Advanced Development at BEA Systems, Inc.

The technology preview of BEA XMLBeans is available immediately as a free, hosted service at http://dev2dev.bea.com/techtrack/detail.jsp?highlight=xmlbeans

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
