Hi all,

At the moment I'm looking for a freely available (possibly java) library 
for building up the correct XML schema. The critical point is translating 
relational constraints into an XML schema.  Then I'm looking for free APIs 
for importing / exporting data according to that schema.

I got into various propietary versions of this such as Microsoft, Oracle 
XML DB and XML Spy.

Freely available versions are mostly based on JDO, the question is do I 
really need JDO ?
If I have a new DB to be plugged in, actually I don't wan't to do any more 
java programming or debugging ... this is why I don't like JDO.

The database interface can be simply the XML definition itself. This is 
straightly done in Microsoft and Oracle approaches.

Is there  a free set of such APIs, possibly database independent one ? For 
example supporting Oracle, MS sqlserver, and Postgres ?
