Bernd,

If what you are doing is simply generating SVG code (e.g., on a server)
for rendering later on in a browser, you could do something like (using
Project X, but you could also use Xerces):

import com.sun.xml.tree.*;
import org.w3c.dom.*;

XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();

Element svg = doc.createElement("svg");
Element rect = doc.createElement("rect");
rect.setAttribute("width", "400");
rect.setAttribute("width", "400");
svg.appendChild(rect);
doc.appendChild(svg);

// ....


// Stream to file
doc.write(new FileOutputStream("mySvgFile.svg"));

This does not give you the ease of use of the SVG Java bindings, but
it may be enough for what you are trying to do.

I hope this helps. FYI, we (Sun) are also working on a Java 2D API 
Graphics2D SVG generator that would automatically translate any Java 
rendering into its SVG equivalent, but this is not yet available on 
Sun's web site.

Regards.
