Yes, it looks very promising.  I like the fact that its open
source, a native XML database, has XPath querying, and that it
seeks to support vender-neutral specifications (see, the XML:DB
Initiative: http://www.xmldb.org/).

There is talk about JDOM integration...the JDOM "interfaces"
question is apparently an issue however.

*Auto linking* is one feature of the dbXML server that I am very
interested in.  I imagine using it with XSLT to piece together new
documents from any document fragments in the database.

BTW, they are in need of more help with development...
