JAXB defines many Java/XML binding details; most importantly, it defines
the runtime API and the schema extensions. See http://java.sun.com/xml/jaxb for
details about JAXB.
However, JAXB lacks some features that are important for Java/XML binding.
In particular, JAXB does not define a persistency layer. Working with XML
means storing XML in a database and reading it from the database. A complete
Java/XML binding tool has to support this part of the job as well.
JaxMe 2 will include a persistency layer; specifically, a relational database
will be supported. This layer is not yet included in JaxMe 2. However, when
the persistency layer is included in JaxMe 2, it will most likely look like
the persistency layer of the first version of JaxMe.
For details, see the Package summary as well as the rest of this JaxMe documentation.
