Data binding for JAVA APPLET

- We have a complex JAVA applet.
 - Servlets are used for receiving and returning data from Applet.
 - Servlets contain XML data fetched from database.
 - We use hibernate for database connectivity.
 - Threads are used for GUI responsiveness
 - We use Netbeans 5.0
 - We use Apache Tomcat as the servlet container.

Problem : It takes a hell lot of time to add new features to the applet. Even adding a combo box and filling it with value received from database is a pain.

Question : What can we do in order to shorten the development time?

It depends on what development methodology you are following. If you are following the Waterfall model, you will take more development time. If you wanna reduce it, try the Sprint/ Agile mode.

The problem is
 1 - Our components are not data-aware.
 2 - Our application is not a desktop application but an applet, therefore it does not directly connect to database. That's why we use servlet+xml to receive data from DB.

As I said before this lengthens our development process too much. What are your advices?

It looks like object/relational mistmatch, which cause n+1 selects problem. Suggests you use Hibernate which can solve this kind of problem, more about Hibernate can be found in http://www.hibernate.org/

UCool, We already use hibernate. But that's not the issue.
BTW I keep on searching through the internet.
I found jsr 296 might be of use. Still reading it.

If your developers are skilled use the Agile mode of development.

As I said I kept on searching.
The solution is
  1 - Using SwingX of SwingLabs (Which is said to be data-aware, but the stated methods seem to lack in the real implementation)
  2 - Using SwingSet http://swingset.sourceforge.net/

The latter does not bind to xml actually (which was what i needed). But is data-aware using JDBC.
SwingX is said to be data-aware and stated that it can bind to
 - beans (hibernate, rmi, webservices)
 - xml
 - dataset (sql, csv, tsv)
But the available libraries i tested lacked of corresponding methods.

If SwingSet is data aware using JDBC and you need XML, there are products available which can convert a JDBC ResultSet to XML:
