[jdom-interest] XPath - the reverse?

Dear all,

Most of the time we only worry about retrieval of nodes using an XPath
expression, but now I want to reconstruct a hierarchy using an XPath.

It is like packing a directory into a tarball, and then restoring it on a
different directory or machine. Of coz the paths have to be absolute, with
no wildcards (node tests and predicates).

It is not difficult to split the path by a slash, then build one by one if a
node doesn't already exist. But is there any other approaches to doing this?

Any idea would be appreciated.
