There is no schema for the xml file that I'm processing with JAXB, so I have to write the binding classes. I found a good guide here, but I've run into a problem that I can't find addressed anywhere.

Here is a portion of the xml file. (actually, it's an Atom feed)

How do I handle the ":" in the element names? I can't define a variable with a name like that.

Maybe JAXB is not the way to handle an ATOM feed? Should I be going in a different direction? I've looked at ROME and Abdera, but they both use the URL class as input and I can't get through our proxy server using URL. I have to use the apache httpcomponents to authenticate to the proxy.

I only need about 3 of the elements from this feed. Should I just roll my own SAX reader to get the information that I need?
