Hello and welcome,
 I've heard it said that, when compared to Spring, Spring Boot paves the way for a faster and more efficient development eco-system.
 Do you think this is true?  And, if true, can you explain why this is so and just "how much faster/efficient" Sprint Boot is as a development eco-system.?
 Thank you.

 It is great to be here and to see another book on JavaFX.  I was afraid it was going to "disappear" from the coding world.
 So, with the rise of HTML 5, JavaScript, etc, are my fears warranted about the future of JavaFX?
 My understanding is that JavaFX is being commercially supported by Oracle in Oracle JDK 8 at least until 2022.  I have also read that JavaFX is supported by Gluon.  Are these support relationships still intact?
 (Of course, there is the OpenFX community support and development as well).

Hello Ken,
 Great to have you here.
 What is the status of Kotlin in the world of embedded systems and iOS?  I had read that JetBrains has/had intentions of moving the language in those directions.
 Thank you.

Trying to migrate from SVN to Git and looking for the golden rod that will make the transition easier. Any ideas? Are there any tools that assist in this process?
Thank you
Ok, I cleaned up my code and implemented your suggestions Jelle and it compiles but I get a runtime error:

So this points to an error in my POJOs, which are included toward the end of this reply.

If you could lend a hand, 'bartender', that would be a great help to this 'greenhorn' and would be appreciated.

Thanks Jelle for reformatting my questions and your response. And 'yes' the compilation errors were ultimately due to my copy-and-paste "expertise"... LOL

Using JAXB, I can get parent element <name> but not value of <pages>



I have the pojos if you need them. I would like someone to take a shot at the pojos needed as I believe that is where is issue resides.
