I wrote one last year for GNU Classpath, it can be found in CVS or I can

The bit about XML exports is precisely the part that is not implemented
yet :)

I have CCed Mark Anderson who has recently tried to use the package in
his own project. I can also forward his remarks about the current
implementation and the bugs he found.
