you could use something like JAXB to go POJO->XML, then parse the XML
into XOM. But you'd be exposed to the limitations of O/X mapping.

One option is to subclass all the Xom types, and build up your graph
using custom elements, then turn this straight into XML; provide a
custom factory to do the reverse at parse time. I've done this and it
works very well.
