[jdom-interest] Searching tree for all elements

I'm new to JDOM, but I'm excited by what I've seen so far. My question is
regarding the ability to load an XML document and perform a query that
returns all children with a specific name, regardless of their position in
the structure of the document.
For example, I'd like to be able to load an XHTML document, and perform a
query to retrieve all INPUT elements.
getChildren() only returns the direct children of an Element. A brute force
way to do this would be to write a function that recurses over all the
elements, and returns the elements that match. However, I was wondering if
there was a more optimal way to do this.
Thanks for the help,
