Got To Believe It's Getting Better

I am gradually figuring out more and more about how to work with Java types, enums, autoboxing, and generics, which is important when you're doing inbound XML serialization, as you end up needing to create a lot of objects. I've written a bunch of little utility routines that keep my XML consistent and the resulting XML document is making successful round trips, which I find very encouraging.

Eventually, I will have written enough utilities to cover all of my current cases. Right now, I'm still at the stage where I go to serialize another class and go, "Whoops! Time to write some more serialization code..."
