Though this article is written for anyone interested in XML, it has a
special relationship to the JavaWorld series on XML
JavaBeans. (See Resources for links to related articles.) If you've been reading that series and aren't quite "getting it," this article should clarify how to use XML with beans. If you are getting it, this article serves as the perfect companion piece to the XML JavaBeans series, since it covers topics untouched therein.
And, if you're one of the lucky few who still have the XML JavaBeans
articles to look forward to, I recommend that you read the present
article first as introductory material.
