Roman,

there's a few tools to generate and process OpenMath.
- The Wiris input-editor and JOME are two expression editors (JOME is 
open-source)
- there are several conversion tools and at least one library
- There are several linear-syntax-to-OpenMath processors, QMath is one 
of them I like
In conjunction with the MathML-content-to-and-from-OpenMath stylesheets, 
you could take advantage of it.

Tools to edit and process Content-MathML do exist a bit as well.
To name a few WebEQ, Mathematica, and Maple (both of the latter only 
with direct function calls very unfortunately), I think Maplets could 
give you this as well maybe.

You haven't been very clear about your intent of processing 
MathML-content... why is a general XML library not appropriate for you ? 
E.g. DOM, StAX, JDOM ?
At least to instantiate variables this is what I'd use.

paul
