The Apache XMLBeans team is pleased to announce the availability of
Apache XMLBeans v2.1.0. XMLBeans is a complete XML processing solution
for Java, including XML Schema support, XML Schema to Java binding,
lightweight fast Infoset access, XML Schema information access, DOM, SAX
and StAX implementations, XPath/XQuery integration. Everything is
available in a package that is easy to use and fully integrated,
allowing the user to seamlessly switch between all APIs.

 XML Schema features:

-  full XML Schema support, including redefines, substitution groups,
identity constraints etc 
-  easy to use command-line tool for verification of Schemas: "scomp
schema.xsd" (can also generate Java binding classes)
-  informative error reporting with line number clearly pointing out the
error, intuitive error text and reference to the section of the XML
Schema spec that was violated
-  ultra-fast validation of instance documents, regardless of size
-  easy to use command-line tools for validation: "[s]validate
schema.xsd instance.xml"
-  on-demand validation enables separation of the parsing step from the
validation step 
-  ability to validate any sub-tree in an XML document
-  "compilation" of XML Schemas step creates jar including information
digested from a set of Schemas, making for a faster, simpler, more
lightweight application runtime

instance document; supports different XML Schema design patterns, very
useful for prototyping
-  command line tool to generate a sample instance document based on a
given XML Schema
