Hi Chang - 

  I'm guessing if you are looking specifically for those, you may have
my book ;-)  For a long list of reasons, Builder and AbstractBuilder are
no longer part of JDOM. We discovered that most Builders don't have a
common starting point, such as always taking an InputStream, File, and
URL. Some take ResultSet objects, some take DOM objects, etc. So now you
just use them directly... for example, instead of:

Builder builder = new SAXBuilder();

you just do:

SAXBuilder builder = new SAXBuilder();

Of course, the import org.jdom.input.Builder statement goes away as

Hope that helps.
