Why would he want to do that? I mean, Hibernate et alii are tools
that are supposed to completely hide the fact that there is a non-
Java persistence layer from the programmer. So what difference is
there between using an XMLDB or a relational (hierarchical,
object, ...) DB if I can't see it?
That aside, I think it should be fairly easy to hack something like
that together using JAXB, all the heavy Object serialization lifting
has already been done.
