I am an experienced Java and XML developer, who is currently between jobs.
If the primary issue in this stanse discussion is that we want to add more rules, then the fact that the rules are interpreted by Java does not matter.
If people find that XML is not how they want to express the rules, then if we can identify another way that people want to express the rules, then if the other way is functionally equivalent to XML, it would be relatively easy to write something to translate from that other language into functionally equivalent XML. Another alternative is to create a GUI front-end to edit the XML without a human actually having to look at it.
So, if not in XML, how would we want to express the static rules?
