It was pointed out to me that XMLBeans is not mentioned on
http://www.w3.org/XML/Schema, but it probably would make sense for it to be
listed.  How can I request that a link be added about the tool?

I'd probably suggest that the link read something like this:


XMLBeans is an open-source XML and XML Schema implementation for Java.  It
provides a simple-to-use and complete schema compiler, a fast validator, a
physical and logical XML schema API, an XML instance API, as well as a code
generator that translates schema types into faithful Java classes with
friendly getters and setters.

XMLBeans provides both Java-oriented and XML-oriented access to data
simultaneously.  A compiled XMLBean provides strongly-typed getters and
setters named after the element and attributes names in the compiled schema,
and it provides XPath, DOM, and cursor-oriented access to the full XML
infoset as well (including comments, element order, and invalid content).
The XMLBean model also supports 100% of the XML Schema specification
(including full validation, full type inference, complete type and element
substitution, wildcards, all facets, imports/includes/redefines, and so on).

XMLBeans v1 is tested, mature, and usable, and XMLBeans v2 work is ongoing
(in 2004).  XMLBeans is currently in incubation as an Apache XML project, at
http://xml.apache.org/xmlbeans/.  Open-source users and contributors are

Thanks for any help in posting the link!
