xml-object mapping

Hi!

I am looking for an xml-object mapping tool ('XML Data Binding-design
time product') where I can define the mapping rules in 'binding files'
and the parser is generated automatically.

Similar to the solution of Dave Kuhlman
(http://www.rexx.com/~dkuhlman/generateDS.html) where the mapping is
defined in an xml file (if I am understand well).

But I already have the target object. The xml-tags should not be used as
a property/member name, but should be mapped to an existing object.

(There are existing tools, but written in Java (I would prefer Python; I
am biologist not using Java for 5 years), like JiBX
(http://jibx.sourceforge.net), Castor (http://www.castor.org; "XML-based
mapping file to specify bindings for existing object models"))

Thanks for your help in advance,
Tamas

In generateDS the mapping is not just deined in any old sort of XML
file: it's defined in a W3C XML Schema file, which makes good sense
(except that in my case I dislike WXS).

Amara does not use a mapping specification: it maps automatically, and
it allows you to specify your own classes for the mapping. This is
discussed in the manual.
