[OSGeo-Discuss] GML Java parsing

Forgot a couple... 

There is a "jaxb" take on OGC schemas (including filter and GML) over on java.net.
- http://java.net/projects/ogc

I had earlier dismissed this approach as a waste of time (as sun kept messing up jaxb libraries between releases making it a cross problem nightmare). However I get the impression it has settled down a bit.

I still suspect it is only good for binding the defined objects (Point, DirectPostion, Surface, etc...) and not able to handle the dynamic objects (i.e. any extension of AbstractFeature). In any case each to their own ...

The other projects I mentioned were:
- http://www.osgeo.org/deegree
- http://www.osgeo.org/gvsig

Best of luck

Although your goal of an LGPL parser prevents direct use you may be interested in reading over the GPL gvSig parser - it uses a schema assisted parser based on the geotools design.
