I am using XSL in that way and have developed a tool that you can use to
do it. I use XSL to generate an XML description of the set of UI components
(beans, in general) that I want to create and configure to be the UI. The
XML I generate is Bean Markup Language (BML), now available from IBM 
alphaWorks at 

BML allows you to describe a set of beans that you want to create and 
configure and also comes with a small (35k jar file) "player" that 
"plays" BML documents to create the actual running UI. It also comes
with a compiler that'll compile the BML document to reflection-free
Java code (the player has to rely on reflection to interpret the document).

Please drop me a note if you have questions / comments about BML.
