Hi,

Can you please tell me which tool( or probably which of the API) could be used for creating java object from an input XML file.

I heard that castor is the one that supports this. What jaxb does? if both of them are supporting the same thing then which one is better?

JAXB 2.0 would be my choice as it is part of Java 6 SE anyway.

I second that, specially if you're thinking about developing Web Services with Java, as data binding has been removed from the new JAX-RPC (JAX-WS). J2EE vendors will need to provide or use a JAXB implementation to be compliant.

As a feedback we've been using JAXB 1.1 for over a year without problems. Our XML Schemas are somewhat complex and JAXB handles them nicely, something that WSDL2Java from both Apache Axis and IBM Websphere didn't.

Regards.
