Dear all,
I wanted to share my little servlet that validates a meta.xml  
descriptor for darwin core archives.
This is a simple xml file that provides the information about the  
layout of text data files, mainly which column represents which darwin  
core term.

People often want to handcraft darwin core archives as it is so simple  
to dump data straight from a database into text files. This tool helps  
to make sure that the descriptor, which usually is a static write-it- 
once file, is valid without knowing how to use oxygen or other xml
