<h3>1. INTRODUCTION</h3>
This scope of the <em>Digester</em> component is primarily
oriented to XML -> Java object mapping.
A <em>Digester</em> processes an XML input stream by matching a
series of element nesting patterns to execute Rules that have been added
prior to the start of parsing. This package was inspired by the
<code>XmlMapper</code> class that was part of Tomcat 3.0 and 3.1,
but is organized somewhat differently.
The original source was donated by the
<a href="">Struts Framework</a> subproject.
