Yours might be - the xerces.jar in JDOM's current lib/ dir contains SAX
2.0 final, which uses the getQName method. In beta 4 we used reflection
to allow older parsers which had the SAX 2.0 pre-release, but enough
time has gone by that it's worth cutting out the time taken by
reflection. If you do a cvs update, or completely new checkout, or just
download beta 5, you're all set. Otherwise it wouldn't build, which I've
done a million times ;-) I just tested it now, as well.
