9i XML access abstraction layer?

Just starting to evaluate the XML facilities of 9i for supporting a Java application. The JAXB and XMLBean access abstraction layers appear to provide the most appropriate Java programming models for accessing the XML data. However, in both cases, it appears that the layers operate directly on an XML document rather independent of 9i (or for that matter any database). Seems like that defeats most of the benefits of using an XML enabled database -- I had hoped that the JAXB distributed with 9i had been integrated with the database, but it seems to be little more than a copy of the reference implementation.

Have I missed something?

Is there a (more) integrated Java/XML access abstraction layer available for 9i?
