[jdom-interest] Convert XML data to Java ojbects

Hi all,

I wrote a simple utility that helps you convert XML data to instantiated
Java objects and vice-versa.
It uses a simple naming convention schema that can be overridden by a
configuration file.

In order to convert an XML file to a Java object you use something similar
to :
  XMLConversionRule rule = new DefaultXMLConversionRule ( new File
 "person_in.xml" ) ) ;
  XMLConvertor converter = new XMLConvertor () ;
  Object obj = converter.convert( doc.getRootElement() , rule ) ;

And for the opposite direction you use :
  ObjectConvertor converter = new ObjectConvertor () ;
  ObjectConversionRule rule = new DefaultObjectConversionRule ( new File
 "person_out.xml" ) ) ;
  Element root = converter.convert( person , rule );

I'm not sure if I should enclose a jar file to the entire list.
So if someone is interested, I'll be happy to contribute the code.

Hope you'll find it useful
