I am new to xml myself but have achieved what you are asking. I used SAX to instantiate my object in the startDocument() method, then populated instance variables by using the endElement() method.
I have no idea if this is a good approach, but it works. It was sort-of built off the tutorial for JAXP 1.1, early access 2. The java xml stuff is at http://java.sun.com/xml/?frontpage-spotlight.
I hope this helps,
Michael

(a few minutes later...)
I just went to that site and saw that JAXP 1.1 final was released earlier this month. I would imagine that's the API to use.
