One of the things I am liking about JAXB is that I can, in about 30 
produce an API that meets my XSD, and let's me completely seperate the XML
serialization from the actual application code.  Realistically, this can be
done with JDOM as well --  but it requires much more self-written code to 
things like detaching from one parent to attach it to a different one -- 
of just passing the Object around like the rest of Java.
