This is a general question I have about the status of JDOM in the web world.

I am about to embark on a large web job and I am weighing out my options.
I am planning on writing all content in XML (generated from Java servlets)
and translating it to HTML through XSL (using Cocoon).

Is JDOM used in practice to create XML (and XSL)?  I have looked at the
other primary options (SAX,DOM) it seems that the closest product is JAXP
which is much less intuitive, powerfull, and java-oriented than JDOM.  I
want to use JDOM for its ease of use.  However, in its beta stage I am
unsure that it is capable of everything I need for an active dynamic web

My primary concern about Beta4 for JDOM is that I haven't been able to get
namespaces working, I am going to post a more detailed message about this
but please mention whether or not namespaces are working in Beta4 when

Thanks for bearing with me, I am new to this and I am in a bit of a rush, I
have reviewed some of the source code and am interested in contributing but
need to know if the product can help me first.
