[jdom-interest] Divorcing Root Element from document!!

I was trying to do things differently: I wanted to merge two or more XML
documents which conform the same DTD so that my root JDOM element (from the
1st file) will have all children elements of root elements from all files.
Is there an easy way of doing it?

I am running JDOM beta 4.

Set the source Document's RootElement to null, methinks, after
you've suck out the RootElement that needs transplanting.

	Element root = doc.getRootElement();

	// can now reparent root
