BEA Releases XMLBeans to open source

Just back from vacation and catching up with my daily dose of TSS when I see this headline – BEA Releases XMLBeans to open source. I was just blogging about this topic earlier this month. This is great news and I hope the Apache group will accept XMLBeans as an Apache project and allow us to get to a really nice, rich, robust and now open XML – Java binding framework.

I’ve used XMLBeans that’s ships with the 8.1 release of WebLogic workshop and I just love the idea of getting away from writing XML plumbing code. It’s great to see another standards complaint tool out there that will simplify XML – Java binding and the schema validation is just the icing on the cake. Kudos to BEA and the XMLBeans team for making this happen.
