First, you want to get the latest JDOM from CVS - beta 4 is way out of
date, and if you like it, you will be even happier with the latest
version (coming out in beta 5 later this week).

Second, it appears that you have jdom.jar in your path, but not
xerces.jar (in the jdom/lib directory). Add that and life will be good
