Hi Ross,

Jato was designed to convert Java objects into JDOM documents and JDOM documents
into Java objects. Jato scripts are written in XML and describe the
transformations to perform. It supports the JavaBeans standard and invoking
complex methods and constructors. If you want more information you can go to
http://www.krumel.com/jato or email me. Jato is also hosted at SourceForge.

Here is a simple example to read and XML file, create a java.util.Properties
object, set the properties:

 <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
 <Jato:java-defs xmlns:Jato='http://www.krumel.com/jato' >

    <Jato:translate elt='system-properties'>
       <Jato:object class='Properties' publish='props'>
          <Jato:on-elt name='property' action='invoke' method='setProperty'>
             <Jato:param type='string' path='@name'/>
             <Jato:param type='string' path='@value'/>

Also, very soon it will have integrated XSL capabilities and generate dynamic
web pages.

Hope it helps,
