Well, jdom-complete isn't the beta candidate.  The URL to get the beta
candidate was in my earlier message (Servlets.com/outgoing-jdom).

Yep.  BTW, there's a really minor bug in this area.  If "java" runs JDK
1.1, but you set JAVA_HOME to point at JDK 1.2, then the antRun script
will still run the standard "java" JDK 1.1 binary ignoring JAVA_HOME. 
Looks like it's actually a bug in the "Java" task.  It may be tricky to
fix (haven't checked it out).

Alex looks to have fixed this (tho the patch isn't going into beta5).
