JaxMe 2 is a JAXB implementation

JAXB (Java Architecture for XML Binding) is a new, evolving standard for tools such as JaxMe. While the first version of JaxMe defined its own API and schema extensions, JaxMe 2 aims to be an implementation of JAXB. 

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.
