XML based scripting engine
Jelly is an XML based scripting engine. The basic idea is that XML elements can be bound to a Java Tag which is a Java bean that performs some function.
Jelly uses an XMLOutput class which extends SAX ContentHandler to output XML events. This makes Jelly ideal for XML content generation, SOAP scripting or dynamic web site generation. A single Jelly tag can produce, consume, filter or transform XML events. This leads to a powerful XML pipeline engine similar in some ways to Cocoon.
