As someone mentioned, you can use "cygpath -p" to convert a POSIX-style
path into a Win32-style one.

Alternatively, you can try using my java wrapper scripts that will do the
translation automatically for you (the scripts can be found at
you'll need to edit the scripts to point them to your Java installation

Or, since you're doing XML processing in Java, you might find XJ
(<http://www.research.ibm.com/xj/>) useful.  There's a prototype on IBM
alphaWorks (a free download), and it works under Cygwin.
