Hi

A heard some rumours about a high level DOM tool for java.
If I have an XML doc like:
<article>
<section>foo</section>
<section>bar</section>
</article>

Does anyone know of tool that can give me java classes to
access the XML data above like:
article.sectionList[2].value == "bar"
or something similar?

Java got a DOM parser you could downloade from sun's homepage www.java.sun.com

but it's a bit more complicated than that... The parser can give you an tree that is similar to your xml structure. Everything is considered a node or an element and there is a bunch of methods that can be used

I'm not at all looking for an ordinary DOM
parser.

providing the DTD of your XML articles,
I suspect you will be able to find the tool you want.
What id the DTD's name?

The DTD is home made. Let's call it "foobar.dtd".

There are no standard tool for your purpose, however, we developed a similiar API  for this purpose. The whole idea is to parse the XML using SAX and put the result in hash table like following

<article title='whatever'>
<section>foo</section>
<section>bar</section>
</article>


article[1].title.att == whatever
article.sectionList[1].value == "foo"
article.sectionList[2].value == "bar"


We can also translate the hash table back into XML
