That won't work if the output is HTML as you can not build a JDOM document 
from HTML content (because it's not well-formed XML).

XSLTransform.java is a good way to start for how to allocate a XSLT processor.
But if you want just plain XML to HTML conversion, skip JDOM and the 
JDOMSource/Result and use a plain StreamSource for feeding the XML to the XSLT 
processor and a StreamResult to get the HTML as text directly on the servlet 
response stream.
