Introduction

As already explained, Castor is an open-source product. This means that the source code is available at no charge and may be obtained using SVN or downloaded via http://dist.codehaus.org/castor.

Having said that, it is noteworthy to mention that there's plenty of companies out there that offer ...

Use of Castor in other open source projects

This section identifies various (mainly) open source projects where Castor is used and/or that offer tight integration with Castor or parts thereof.

Apache Cocoon

Apache Cocoon is a web publishing framework built around the concepts of separation of concerns and component-based web development.

As part of this framework, Cocoon provides a component, the CastorTransformer, that marshalls an object hierarchy (for which a mapping file or a class descriptor hierarchy exists) to XML and inserts it as a stream of SAX events into a Cocoon pipeline.

Further information on the integration of Apache Cocoon and Castor can be found here.
