Package org.jdom Description

Classes to represent the components of an XML document. The Verifier is a special class useful in ensuring well-formedness of documents. The Parent interface is implemented by Document and Element exposing their commonality. The Content abstract class is extended by all the node types of a document except Document itself. The JDOMFactory interface and DefaultJDOMFactory standard implementation provide advanced users with the ability to create subtypes of the org.jdom classes.
